The question is serious. The logging facility either has to provide
rigorious means to specify the level of logging, or should rely on an
external filter. Choosing any single level of suppression usually turns
out to be a problem for users, and a source of further complaint.
That's why the Integration and Connectivity Kit includes the full
source code for the Ant task, allowing to pass a different logger and
customize it as much as a particular installation demands.

On the other hand, Ant itself provides filtering capabilities for
standard error output, which are powerful to satisfy the needs of
filtering without burdening the code with arbirtrarily chosen options.
