It would be nice to have Checkstyle report, perhaps
just as a warning, the presence of particular character
strings within comments.

Many people use XXX or FIXME tags to note a problem for
later resolution but often forget to come back to the
problem. Reminding by Checkstyle would be a good thing.

    I support this RFE.

    Some tools (like Emacs JDE) support autogereration of
    javadoc. Of course the tool often cannot generate a
    meaningful comment, so it basically just writes /*
    Undocumented.
    /. Checkstyle should be able to find such
    comments and consider the class/method undocumented.
