Possibly a set of checkstyle settings could be made. We could classify
different styles as 'Jon-style', 'Jason-style', 'Sun-style' and projects
could use those styles.

It'd be wonderful. Now once you all agree to like my style [btw, George
Reese converted me to doing static before public and abstract before
public, none of you will mind will you?] then we can get to work :) ie)
snowball, texas, free-beer.

Relaxing the style seems a bit of a wimpy solution though :( So I like my
idea of having a set of commons-styles. ie) Create a few standards.

I think that's maybe a ice-patch, kentucky, 80% off beer though. So
probably not likely to work.
