Hi Bastien,

Thanks for the feedback.

Regarding naming, there may ofc be other possibilities. I considered spelling the level out but discarded that option due to its verbosity. I find this quite elegant actually. One might argue that it's not general enough, with 2 to 5 hard-coded. But thinking of the use-case a bit more, I struggled to find a reason for more dynamics.

I don't object to the mailing list RFC method of doing things, but in this case it felt like a too small contribution for that trouble. Had there been a more streamlined pull-request workflow than the list I'm sure I'd have taken another decision. In this case the option was to just not do it due to time and energy constraints.

Nitpick noted, I'll try to care better with ending sentences moving forward!

thanks -- in the future, I suggest discussing such additions on this
list before committing them.  In this case, I think we could come up
with better option names than "show2levels", even if I don't have a
better suggestion right now.

Mandatory nitpick: the log should contain proper sentences, ending
with a dot.  I'm mentioning this because your other commit has the
same small error.

It sure is, thanks for taking care of this,
