Hi Mike,

we are definitely very aware of this need, but I can't comment on future plans to address it.

Please feel free to file a bug on bugreporter.apple.com asking for analyzer support for dispatch objects.

Since they're not CFTypes I realize support to clang's static analyzer need to be added.  After using a lot of the new dispatch_io calls and having manage dispatch_data_t objects, it seems like there is a much larger use case for analysis support.
