[Pharo-project] getting rid of these boring questions and popup

Yes, the popups should go away - far away :) A code mentor pane with lint rule violations would be greatly appreciated, but the modal messages are too much. Sometimes I want to save code that I know will generate errors, with reasons ranging from "I'll let it blow up and choose to implement it from the debugger" to "don't want to lose this, so let's get it accepted before I do something stupid."

i would be quite happy if the "this variable is not used" was picked up by a lint rule. the "your using this variable and you haven't yet assigned a value" is sometimes nice. however, if lint/slint/slime (?) had a nice permanent UI mechanism in the browser (i haven't checked) then I would get rid the former in preference of such a framework that can point out all sorts of useful things with the code when you accept methods. could then be package / context aware etc.
