PyChecker doesn't check my python code. Even if I wrap all Java class access
into another python module, PyChecker still complains that it can't find the

AFAIK the first thing it does with
an analyzed module is trying to plainly import it,
if the module references something that cannot be
imported, PyChecker dies.
I care about these issues with PyChecker, and I have ideas
and plans to make it work with Jython. Clearly
a different approach by PyChecker would make
everybody's life easier, OTOH with open source
projects everybody has legitimately his own agenda.
So what I'm planning are huge hacks and nobody
should hold his breath <wink>.
