We have a similar use case: a logging framework that uses the close() 
call to measure the runtime of some code block.

It looks like this:

try (__ __ = ThreadLogger.block(SomeClass.class, "someAction")) {
// some code

Note we named the helper class and variable already "__" to make clear 
that they are not used - before Java 8 we used to called them "_“ :-)

Big advantages in comparison to e.g. a lambda based solution are that 
this doesn’t interfere with exceptions and variables outside the try 
statement can be assigned.

There are also more cases reported by other people in 
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=560733 , which why an 
already implemented warning for such variables by Eclipse was removed again.
