#299 Add Ant task checkstylereport

Frank D

Add Ant task checkstylereport just like the junitreport
task. This task would create a nice html report of the
checkstyle output.

For more info on the type of report just look at a junit
report created with the Ant task <junitreport> .

    Task <junitreport> is not as flexible as task <style>.
    Basically, <junitreport> aggregates junit XML result files
    and applies one of two stylesheets to the aggregated file,
    with limited control over the styling.

    For more flexibility with checkstyle, aggregate the XML
    error files and then use the <style> task with, for example,
    one of the contributed stylesheets. The attached archive has
    an ant build file with target "aggregate" that performs the
    aggregation. The <style> task of the target requires
    stylesheet copy.xsl of the archive.
