There are actually 2 axis along which we can filter:

  1. the message's type ('page not found', 'access denied', 'php  
message', 'user message', 'content message').
  2. the message's severity ('critical', 'error', 'warning',  
'notice', 'debug').

Both (1) and (2) are parameters of the watchdog() function.  It might  
be a good idea to provide two filter blocks, one for type and one for  
severity.  Then I can do queries like: "show all user messages that  
are critical".
