Yeah, I kind of agree -- already on your side, really :-).

The best strategy would be to start a separate thread, to figure out
what the log-level (or message-level, whatever) variable should be
called, where it should be defined, and -- most importantly -- what
the various verbosity levels should be.  If you would like to initiate
that thread and drive the discussion, we can probably get that settled
reasonably quickly.  Then I'll switch saveplace (and other packages I
help maintain) to use the new system.

If you don't have time to do that, please say so, and I'll try to take
care of it.  (Perhaps I shouldn't have committed the current change to
saveplace first, but I wanted to leave markers for where the new code
should be hooked in.)

Sure, I can port the coding-system change over to the EMACS_22_BASE
branch (I'm assuming that's the right one; it's sometimes hard to tell
what branches serve what purposes here).
