Subject Re: Interest in a @UtilityClass AST transform
Date Fri, 12 Jan 2018 02:11:58 GMT
I think the name is good.

I feel @Static would be a natural choice to be extended to support 
typical METHODS or FIELDS paramters, to only make these static, which 
does not make sense for an utility class, which by definition is 
static-only.
