Logging Levels #2

Thanks for the easy to use package. A few questions.

Is there a way to get log4j behavior with the logging levels. If one sets level.warn all levels up to warn should print, not just those at warn and above. The inverse of how it currently works.

Is 'log' supposed to be the level that prints all?

I did not see a way to set a level once you have already configured a logger.

if you want change config in runtime, write code like

var conf = {
        log_dev : {
            strategy : 'colorConsole',
            setting : {
                level : 'log'
        log_prd : {
            strategy : 'console',
            setting : {
                level : 'warn'

var tracer = require('tracer')

function test(c){
    var logger = tracer[c.strategy](c.setting);
    logger.trace('hello', 'world');
    logger.debug('hello %s', 'world', 123);
    logger.warn('hello %s', 'world', 123);
    logger.error('hello %s', 'world', 123);
