The _Nonnull and _Nullable annotations seem mainly focused on preventing the
literal "nil" being passed into a method or set for a nonnull property.
However, this is much more relaxed than Swift's null checking. It would be
great if we could statically analyze if what was being passed in as a nonnull
parameter was nonnull itself. It could recognize if a nullable variable was
being used in a way that made it nonnull.

For example:
if (!x) {
[self runWithNonnullArg:x];


[self runWithNonnullArg:(x ?: @"")];

Both of these would be pass the static analysis.
