Well, I regularly do
qDebug() << Q_FUNC_INFO;
when debugging my own stuff :) Anyhow, this makes the information a part of the message itself, with no easy way to hide/unhide it afterwards. It also misses file/line information ...
* Jump directly to the source file / line where a log message is emitted, by just clicking on it
* Filter messages according to their level in the console
