level(debug .. emerg), spaces are important.

The problem is that, if I try to remove '.' from the valid word characters,
IP address would have to be enclosed withing quotation marks. So there are
two alternatives:

1) You have to put spaces between '..' and the priority id
2) You have to enclose IP addresses within ""

What do you think?
