Not sure how thrilled the xml purests will be however, it we trim the results of this list, we can split the exception string onto multiple lines.


    <rule ref="rulesets/cleancode.xml/StaticAccess">
            <property name="exceptions" value="\Foundry\Masonry\Core\Notification,\Foundry\Masonry\Core\GlobalRegister,\Foundry\Masonry\ModuleRegister\ModuleRegister,\Symfony\Component\Yaml\Yaml"/>


    <rule ref="rulesets/cleancode.xml/StaticAccess">
            <property name="exceptions" value="

A better solution from an xml point of view might be to have individual elements for each exception, however this at least makes the XML file readable

Actually I spotted another problem in this class whereby it treats static access to classes in the same namespace differently to classes with a "use" statement. When a classes that has a use statement is statically accessed, the class name begins with a \, if it's in the same namespace and therefore doesn't need a use the full class name will appear without the leading \.

If you put the use in, this fixes the difference between the exception and the detection, but of course this is considered "unused code" by IDEs since you didnt need to do that.

PHP is fun. :)

I'll add that to this patch.
