Various hint orders

The order of hints should be always the same and the most common or useful ones should be always on the first position. Sometimes there is more than one suggestion and their order depends probably on previous actions (usually code editing, so I have to carefully read them before accepting.
When using Eclipse I could usually just press Ctrl+1 and Enter, because I knew what to expect there. A very common example is in the attachment:
- Split into declaration and assignment
- Suppress Warning - unchecked
I would always expect "Suppress Warning" to be the first and default, but as you can see - it's not always the case. During scanning or compiling in the background the order is opposite.
