There should be a Java interface to perform a check.
This would make it possible for people to create plugins
or whatever for specific checks that they want. It is
impossible for checkstyle to be able to conjure up all of
the wack coding standards that companies come up
with. Checkstyle should allow a developer to easily
create there own check and use it.
ANT allows people to create there own tasks and use
them because it is very useful and that is part of why
ANT is a great build utility. In order for checkstyle to
become a great utility it needs to allow a developer to
write there own checks.
