(This is mainly for warning messages, errors are normally
drastic enough to be obvious, but warnings could be easily
missed from Hatari output if one isn't especially looking
for them.)

I don't have the feeling that the different lengths really help here.
It's rather that the output looks just some kind of untidy to me this
way. But that's likely just a matter of taste. What do the others here

I think unaligned messages are harder to read, so I favour Thomas's suggestion.


What I'm really hoping for in the next release is fewer messages during startup
(I know this was discussed earlier).  I think most users don't want or need to
see most of the messages that appear in the current release.  I count 37 lines
output by Hatari during startup; the only ones I care about are:
  . Hatari version
  . options (CPU, FPU etc)
  . mount of hard drive image
  . GEMDOS HDD emulation mapping
So IMO nearly 90% of startup messages are useless (& annoying actually) to the
average user.

Try the Mercurial version.  Currently it gives following by default
on EmuTOS boot:
$ hatari --tos etos512k.img  hd/
INFO: Hatari v2.1.0, compiled on:  May  6 2018, 20:19:18

Above warnings are on warning level, because in some cases they
are real issues that explain why something user tried won't
work.  Unfortunately on boot they're rarely useful.

BUT you can now remove *all* this output with "--log-level error"
