I am purposely staying away from defining custom levels.  I want to use a level defined by
the framework that will log as long as logging is not turned off.

However, the method I've created for logging events does not expose the level so I guess I
could define my own custom level in code and set it to Level.Off - 1.

Ops, that earlier mail went out too early. Sorry for the noise. ;-)

Level.Off = int.MaxValue
Level.All = Level.Off + 1

This implies that:
Level.All = int.MinValue

which is correct. You should not log events with Level.All or Level.Off. There are so many
numbers in between int.MinValue and int.MaxValue that there's lot of room to invent custom

Is Level.All correct?  I looked at it in reflector and it appears to be Level.Off + 1, but
since it's a signed int that turns it into a large negative number.  This seems to be causing
me some problems.  I'm trying to implement something like log4j's EventLogger which I think
logs events at level All such that as long as logging is not turned off the events will make
it into the logging system.  However, when I log an event at Level.All in log4net it's not
getting logged and my guess is because Level.All is negative and thus less than all of the
predefined levels.  And since my level threshold is set at INFO my events are getting thrown

Is this by design or a bug?
