I expect that the most common usage (by far) of level filters will be the usual
"level >= <foo>" so this should be the better-supported option. I.e. if you
want to use a function-call-like notation, it seems that
should really mean
level >= info
(btw: the Linux's syslog.conf manpage uses "priority" to talk about this
characteristic of a log message). Now do we want fancier specification
and if so what should it look like ?
Clearly we want to be able to specify something like "=" or ranges.
But the above syntax already allows it (just like most syslog daemons
already allow it) with:
level(info) and not level(notice)
So I don't think it's really important to provide anything more.
