I'm using a rather simple module that distinguishes errors from warnings and

You could implement your own log levels easily..

So you can use it like this:
(log-error "the-calling-function" "A ~a ~a ~a" "format" "like" "format")
(log-debug "the-calling-function" "Similar to ~a" 'log-error)
(log-warning "the-calling-function" "Similar to ~a" 'log-debug)

Then there are three functions that return a port to write to:
(default-error-port) (default-warning-port) (default-debug-port)

When (null? port) => #t, no message is written.
