I agree -- some of them are really annoying. Plus, Eclipse has been 
having notorious problems showing warnings for unused parameters in 
overriden methods... But I still think some of the warnings can be 
valuable and your idea with PMD is a good one.

Eclipse deals with these properly -- I use it all the time. I believe it 
also shows warnings for classes referenced in JavaDocs and not imported.

I'll do it. I meant to see PMD anyway so it'll be a good exercise.
