Yes it is sensible to add FindBugs into the default target, but it
should be done after the committers vote to accept the new FindBugs
configuration. At the moment Findbugs is not yet accepted by everyone
due to the sub-optimal configuration.
Glenn; thanks for doing the initial analysis of the exclusions. I'm
happy with the approach you propose to improve the Findbugs
configuration. it would be good if the other committers could review and
give feedback also.

I suggest also to make running findbugs part of the default ant
task so that we don't forget to do it!

I plan to start cleaning up these exclusions by first fixing all
types having 10 or fewer exclusions. This will leave
approximately 25 types of exclusions to handle in a second fix pass.
Eventually, I will identify in the exclusions file all exclusion
types that should not be permitted to be added, i.e., that must
be fixed. I expect that some exclusion types will remain, such as:
Those that remain (and added in the future) should be subject to
an explicit design choice, and not merely to silence a warning.
Once I sort this out, I will ask for a vote on enabling findbugs
in nightly builds.
