No real reason, other than -checker-cfref functionally does the same  
thing as -checker-simple except that it does the retain/release  
checking for Objective-C.  All -checker-simple does is run the path- 
sensitive engine and execute its internal checks.  It's also a bad  
name.  "-checker-basic-checks" instead?
