No, there's nothing like that currently.  It would probably be a good
chunk of work to make a nice, useful diagnostic tool here.  Could be
helpful.  I suppose one could argue that any effort would be better
spent on exploring new ways of avoiding these issues than tools to
recognize them.  But one may lead from the other so I certainly wouldn't
discourage anyone from efforts either way. :-)
