Ant tasks customarily print out at least one summary line. Right now when
the checkstyle task is running ant is silent. So is see the mkdir line above
and the style line below (later), but I don't know that it's actually running
checkstyle.

Obviously a minor cosmetic issue, but it's a bit irksome. Especially in my
case, where my task runs checkstyle tasks in succession with a few different
files -- I don't know which one is running at any given time.

    Fixed in CVS: The Ant task will now always report a line
    like 'Running Checkstyle 4.0 on 339 files'.

    If you want more information, you can run Ant in verbose
    mode. This will report which directories are scanned for
    input files and which configuration is used.
