Hello Leung,

The existing levels in logback are derived from the SLF4J API and as such are 
final. However, SLF4J allows for a different extension point, namely Marker. 
Markers can be used to create the equivalent of new levels and much more. Once 
you have markers in your code, you can apply special treatment of log statements 
with markers using TurboFilters [1].
