Sorry, I lost this patch. I've looked at the results and it still seems that the signal-to-noise ratio is quite low. There's definitely potential in using parameter name and argument spelling to detect possibly swapped arguments, and there's a recent research on this topic, where authors claim to have reached the true positive rate of 85% with decent recall. See https://research.google.com/pubs/pub46317.html. If you're interested in working on this check, I would suggest at least looking at the techniques described in that paper.
