there are 2 concurrent verbosity switches: sys_debuglevel ("-d <n>"
argument) and sys_verbose("[-v]*" cmdline-arg)
i think that sys_debuglevel is really for debugging pd interna.
for adding verbosity, there is the "-v" switches (for each occurence of
"-v" at the cmdline, the sys_verbose-level is incremented.
this value is used with the verbose()-function (so normally you won't
query this value directly but just call verbose() with a given level
that has to be reached)
there are no guidelines yet (especially iirc since pd itself get's
_very_ verbose at level 2: most of the time too verbose for people not
debugging the dsp-scheduler)
so the current guidelines (that i see, but this is by no means
level=1: information for debugging patches
level=2: information for debugging schedulers,...
i think this is way too coarse.
at least 3 levels of verbosity (1 for class loading, 1 for object
behaviour, 1 for more verbose object behaviour) might be useful for just
having more information of what is going on and for simple debugging of
patches (without going into pd interna)
