Looking at this a little more deeply, I see that this works, in the case
of the OnConsoleStatusListener, via simply writing on the console. But
it seems that the level you choose to add (addInfo() vs addWarn() for
example) affects only the status reported on the output device and there
is no filtering available based on these "levels". Is this correct?
