Code Inspection: Explicit member types

Highlights type annotations that do not match the current code style for explicit types.

Type declarations are not necessary when the type inferred from the context exactly matches the type annotation, for example:

var pi: number = 3.14

In some cases it is preferable to always have explicit types - this saves from accidental type changes and makes code more explicit.
