static analysis / meta-level compilation

The Stanford Checker (MC) project keeps cranking out cool domain-specific analyzers.

Static analysis, and the MC project in particular, excites me.

They're now checking filesystems and automatically finding bugs like this:

Which viro confirms is a serious bug.

Look at the report's filesystem image before/after the call. How cool is that? I'd love to see the Metal code that generated that checker.
