IntelliJ IDEA Static Analysis: Custom Rules with Structural Search & Replace

Well, well, I made another screencast. This time I'm taking on IntelliJ IDEA code inspections, and writing your own static code analysis rule (and quick fix!) using Structural Search & Replace. Not bad for under 5 minutes.
