It would be good not to make it impossible to test WARNINGs and
CRITICALs. After all, error cases are often the least tested part of
an application, so it's important to make sure the base library
detects and handles the error cases correctly.

Testing those is like testing segfault handling, i.e. just nuts. The behavior is undefined once they print. (Well, for critical anyway. g_warning seems to be less consistently used)
