My intention is to have kind of bugs that you facepalm when you find it. Mostly simple typos.
As I said this can't make it to clang because it would have some false positives.

I am ok with making group like `bugs` that would have some checks that are curently in misc (misc-use-after-move), but still, this group would be special in the sense that it looks for very simple bugs that you can make during coding, but you won't be able to find it in code that seem to work.
