In practice a non linear scheme would be of more value to a developer. 
The low numbers are all faily well defined, and there doesn't need to 
be very many types of critical errors, its not a useful distinction. 
But at the high end its handy to have lots of information and debug 
codes for fine grain control over the amount of logging generated by 
various layers of the program, during development and problem finding 
with the user.
