I don't want to be overly negative, but that sounds sort of like
you're saying that it's not worth having a good static analyzer in
core, but that you are in favor of having a bad one.

I personally tend to think a static analyzer is a better fit than
adding a whole laundry list of pragmas.  Most people won't remember to
turn them all on anyway, and those who do will find that it gets
pretty tedious after we have more than about two of them.
