warnings.warn() offers a stacklevel parameter to make it easier to write helper functions that generate warnings - by passing "stacklevel=2", you can ensure the warning is attributed to the caller of the helper function, rather than to the helper function itself.

There isn't currently a similarly clear way to write helper functions that emit logging messages - if the format includes "pathname", "filename", "module", "function", or "lineno", then those will always report the location of the helper function, rather than the caller of the helper function.

It would be convenient if logging.debug() et al accepted a "stacklevel" parameter the same way the warnings module does (although this may require some adjustments to the Logger.findCaller method API)
