Though I would say that this is not because the class is final and the
constructor private that it should be disabled...I'd rather do this for a
helper class that contains only static methods no ?

While I understand what you want you want to avoid with this (typically
adapters), I'm not sure at what could be the side effects, though a unused
formal parameter is no big deal.

Oh I can see this as a RFE, caching the information from a whole project
seems necessary to me. As it takes a very long time to iterate in every way
through the AST, it makes sense since a report is a snapshot of a project
with specific settings and this is the only way to compare different
I cannot do this myself as this is related to the software internal API...
