m.invoke() vs. m()

Fine, but if it's a warning it shouldn't be active by default.

Warnings that you cannot (or won't want to) program your way out of
should not be enabled by default.  This was a mistake Java 5 made, and
look how long it took people to move to it, compared to the 1.3 -> 1.4
or 5 -> 6 moves.  I don't count @SuppressWarnings as programming your
way out of it.
