Logging level is not interpreted properly for containers that output their messages on stderr


I'm running the Maven 2 Plugin with the following configuration in order to run integration tests:

When I do a mvn cargo:run or similar I get the following very noisy output on the console:

As you can see I get a stream of [WARNING] messages that should actually be [INFO] messages, three identical "ContextHandler:started" messages for cargocpc.war and then four identical "ContextHandler:started" messages for webapp-with-jdk14-2.0.0-SNAPSHOT.war (my webapp) and an apparently genuine "WARNING: System properties and/or JVM args set. Consider using --dry-run or --exec" which means nothing to me and does not seem to be anything I can either fix or suppress.

I'm a big believer in the importance of keeping logging light and accurate, so repetitive and inaccurate logging like this is something I'd like to know how to fix.
