in http://drupal.org/node/67624 i was having to sort through hundreds of watchdog events to debug something. all i wanted was to be able to filter based on severity (e.g. i only needed the events generated via "WATCHDOG_ERROR") in addition to event type (e.g. 'project'). seems like this should be pretty simple. i'll work on a patch at some point if no one beats me to it. just wanted to post here so i'd remember it, and in case anyone else is inspired to get this working before i have a chance. ;)
