There is no change in any user's workspace - one configuration is
checked in. This is used to perform the formatting during any mvn run.
It's independent of the user's setting (or the user's IDE).

The "big" formatting takes place once - after that only each changed
file gets reformatted ... thus it's not a big deal.

We do use this tool on a rather big codebase without any hazzle - only
the initial cleanup/formatting may take some time.
