   That's what I figured out, and I thought that intf_WarnMsg was very
misleading for the latter use. They weren't really warning messages,
after all. Hence the proposal to split intf_WarnMsg into msg_Warn and

   This makes sense to me but I was hoping these two categories could
be all distributed between Warning, Info and Error whithout having to
bother with warning levels. I'll try to sort all the vlc messages and
see if any doesn't fit.
