hmm, I guess you are right -- I cannot think of any reasons why it should
be 259 (i.e. include info-level messages). And actually, even errors
should be omitted, so the correct level is 256. This is in line with
the native-python and ruby ECI implementations.
So in other words this seems like a correct fix. And it's worth noting
that this will increase ECI robustness for all implementations that are
built on top of the C impl (non-native python, perl, etc).
Big thanks for this fix! I'll submit it to CVS right away. Be
prepared to see your name mentioned in the 2.3.4 release notes. :)
