I think that a more normal approach would be same as with kernel log:
defining the minimum seriousness (max level), and printing the items more 
serious than that.


 > The log level specifies the importance of a message. The kernel decides 
whether to show the message immediately (printing it to the current console) 
depending on its log level and the current console_loglevel (a kernel 
variable). If the message priority is higher (lower log level value) than the 
console_loglevel the message will be printed to the console.

Simiilar approach of "show log items at least as serious as X" (=loglevel 
0-X) would look more natural to me.

There might be also filtering by individual level (with repeatable options), 
but the use case is not that obvious.
