Damn auto-completion

I really wish people would be more careful when using the auto-completion features of IDEs. Though auto-completion does provide some time savings it is also a frequent contributor to sloppy coding. After updating some packages our system broke because someone had incorrectly imported com.google.inject.internal.Sets instead of com.google.common.collect.Sets. Is it too much to ask for people to at least look at the code that is getting generated?
