Not sure, they're semantically different really. A FIXME doesn't necessarily
mean a WARNING, e.g. "FIXME: extract image tag". I see it more as a development
tool really. We'll never know how useful it is until we have it, and some
people swear by it. I'm not particularly attached to it, but I could see myself
using it. The debug level isn't ideal of course, but since there's no space
between WARNING and INFO we'll just have to add it after log for now.

See http://bugzilla.gnome.org/page.cgi?id=email.html for more info about why you received
this email, why you can't respond via email, how to stop receiving
emails (or reduce the number you receive), and how to contact someone
if you are having problems with the system.
