The logging package supports defining as many additional named levels
as you feel like adding, and ZODB added BLATHER and TRACE
zLOG-workalike levels at the time ZODB was converted to use the
logging package.  People may want to restrict themselves to using
logging's built-in levels, but logging was designed to be extended in
this way, so there's no technical barrier here.  In particular, nobody
would want to get ZEO's voluminous but micro-purpose TRACE output at
debug level.
