Thinking aloud, the current callcatcher mode is to just look at what is
immediately unused, no second level of analysis. What I mean is that a
setFoo/getFoo combo where setFoo isn't used, but is implemented like...

  if getFoo() == a

would only report setFoo as unused, so a check for "is both setFoo and
getFoo" unused and only report if it is, would leave both setFoo and
getFoo in there, even though both are actually really unused.

Already have a similar problem with

... doFoo(b)

i.e. something which is only used by itself is currently not reported
on, so cycles of uselessness are currently unreported.
