Code Inspection: Method has Feature Envy on another class

Reports the "Feature Envy" code smell. Feature envy is defined as occurring when a method calls methods on another class more times than on the source class. It often indicates that the intended functionality is located in the wrong class.

Calls to library classes, parent classes, and contained or containing classes are not counted by this inspection.
