Yes, there are areas where our static analysis engine could be doing a
better job.  We have a list of these and will be working to expand what it
can do, since now the results of its work are so much more visible in the
user interface of the IDE.

You can bring any tool up in its own window using the New Tool Window
section of the Window menu.  (Yes, the initial size of windows is
wacky in 2.0b3; this is a bug we need to fix)

There is a little bit of info in the Project chapter of the manual
(section 3.5).

We'll be looking at this for 2.1.  We've been working towards refactoring 
the debugger so it can support this, but there is still work to be done.
