Very Lazy Web: Static Analysis to Detect Blocking Operations

Wouldn't it rock if there was a tool to do static analysis of arbitrary code amenable to static analysis (such as Java) to detect and point out places that will block a thread?

Wouldn't it be double cool if the typical places where there is no choice (say, JDBC) vendors would provide non-blocking extensions?

Almost makes me want to write an async postgresql driver...

/me wonders why the Python community is so far ahead of the Java community on this one.
