Yes, our analysis is written independently of Javac (mostly by Anna
Kozlova) and we had a long history of false-positives/false-negatives
in this inspection, so it was tuned many times. It's not nearly
simple. For now, it's turned on for the whole IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate
repository (a warning causes the CI build to fail). I've found only
five explicit suppressions in our codebase. Not sure if all of them
are still necessary.
