I started putting @Nullable and @NotNull assertions into my code, and 
this got very confusing. I don't know about other tools, but IntelliJ 
gives you warnings if you say @NotNull and then have an "if null" test, 
while if you say @Nullable then the wrong information is conveyed to the 
user of the API.
