That's the one I tried. It died on me with an out-of-memory error (not
Javas/Eclipses fault with 1gig of memory). I guess this is not a big 
issue, though, as we'd probably use it with an ant task.

I agree, though there are some code formatting issues that are important
to error prevention IMO, e.g. always using braces in if-statements
etc. For these things there should be rules.
As Antonio said, some of these things are checked by Eclipse (e.g. unused
imports, unused variables in M7 ?).
What I think is even more important is adding source documentation (and
keeping it consistent with the source) and removing duplicate code and the
like because an unused import doesn't hurt (it's unlikely at
least) whereas code duplication does hurt (when one instance has to be
changed ...).
