[cfe-dev] Suppress: Static Analysis false positive.

Ideally you should avoid this when programming Cocoa.  Retains and releases
should be balanced within every method, with certain structured exceptions
like accessors.  When you do it as you have here it isn't just harder for
the static analyzer, it's harder for you. For example, if the framework
added cancellation via new instance method and corresponding delegate
callback, you'd have to update your code to avoid a leak.

In this case, if possible, make the outstanding request a property of your
