Multi-catch can be split into separate catch blocks

Reports multi-catch sections and suggests splitting them into separate catch blocks.

Example:

try { int i = getIndex(); } catch (NullPointerException|IndexOutOfBoundsException e) { e.printStackTrace(); }

After the quick-fix is applied:

try { int i = getIndex(); } catch (NullPointerException e) { e.printStackTrace(); } catch (IndexOutOfBoundsException e) { e.printStackTrace(); }

This inspection depends on the Java feature 'Multi-catches' which is available since Java 7.
