there are no convenient ways to customize the level of detail of log
output except for the "release" spec value, which suppresses warnings
and debug messages altogether, and retains errors and plain messages only.

Last summer, we introduced an event-tracing feature, which allows you to
trace interesting events such as RPC calls. However, it is not very easy
to use because it requires you to implement a so-called trace monitor
manually. For a simple example of such a trace monitor, please have a
look at 'os/run/'.
