How come logging.error writes to a file, but not logging.debug or logging.info?

Good, you've found the table of predefined logging levels in the module
You'll notice that they are spaced apart by 10; in principle one can
choose levels between them. Kind of irrelevant if nothing logs at such
an intermediate level, but...
For example, I define for myself a TRACE value between INFO and WARNING,
and a trace() call which logs at that level (like the predefined
warning() function logs at logging.WARNING level). I often find my info
calls are too verbose, and the warnings are only for badness, so I have
a kind of intermediate call for "high level" far less frequent logs.
