Personally, I'd go with these decreasing levels of severity:
Fatal: Execution must stop immediately to prevent damage, error
message may or may not be displayed before exiting the process.
Error: Serious trouble, program may or may not be able to recover,
user intervention required.
Warning: Minor trouble, program will recover without user
Notice: Inform the user of a less-than-ideal situation (non-mail file
found, deprecated functionality used, etc). Program will ignore the
cause and carry on.
I don't know if this is a fit for Notmuch, but it would be great if I
could prevent warnings and notices from being reported by using a
command line option.
