I would like to propose the integration of maven-checkstyle-plugin in 
order main POM so that we can keep an eye on non-complaint sources.
Furthermore, we can store the checkstyle and formatter configuration in 
our SVN repository, as many projects do. Also by exploiting a common 
public location (the SVN repository in this case) containing a set of 
configuration file (both for checksyle and code formatting) we can 
auto-configure IDEs by an ad-hoc tuned POM.

What do you think?
