   IME as someone who maintains Maven projects, people often introduce issues like that and
they do not care to fix them unless their build breaks. Remembering in MavenSession that there
were problems with the Maven model will allow me to write Maven Enforcer plugin rule that
will read that and will fail the build.
   > I also fail to see how problems are detected, you only changed the signature of the
   See `org.apache.maven.graph.DefaultGraphBuilder#collectProjects`. It prints the collected
Maven model problems.
   > That really hurts because the plural implies that you have a collection of problem,
and not a boolean value. Moreover, third person singular with a plural reads horribly.
   I am open to suggestions for better name. I have only propagated the `problems` variable
name upwards. One thing, I would like to keep the `isX` or `getX` for the getter as that would
allow me, I believe, to use something like this `ReflectionValueExtractor.evaluate("problems",
session, false);` to retrieve it in the Enforce rule easily, I hope.
