Oh, that's great then. If one of these is present, is it going to
be at the beginning of the puts() string?

Would it be worthwhile removing the strcasestr(.., "error"/"warning"),
and *just* using these instead? That would prevent the potential for
false classification.

We'd probably map both FAIL_MRK and ERR_MRK to LOG_ERROR. Or is FAIL_MRK
more of a warning? Or a notice ("normal but significant condition")?
