and more idiomatic, I'd say - if it's extra debugging information you're
after, I would _expect_ lowering the LogLevel to provide it (if it's
available at all).

personally, I add this kind of stuff at 'info' and save 'debug' for
guts-type things, as debug is more verbose by design anyway.  but adding the
additional information at either level sounds like a good idea.
