   @awasum @xurror @thesmallstar @vorburger Just one concern: doesn't this mean that you can
then check in code that doesn't pass the Spotless formatting standards, and get that to pass
the build anyway? 
   In other words: if I now commit code that is completely wrongly formatted, when Travis
runs the build, it does spotlessApply so the build passes - but the **fixed code is never
committed into Github**: so if I look at the source code on Github (or clone/branch the repository),
it is still incorrectly formatted? 
   This to me would seem to defeat the whole purpose of Spotless: it should ensure that the
code in Github is correctly formatted, not that the code that is compiled is formatted correctly.
The compiler doesn't care about code formatting...
   Also this means that the code everyone is running is actually different from what is checked
into Github. So if you e.g. look at a stack trace from someone's build and compare the line
numbers with source in Github - then the line numbers will not match, as spotlessApply may
have changed them. Also this means that any source code you write is automatically modified
by spotless without you getting a chance to review whether the changes are correct.
   Unless I'm missing something here, then this does not sound like a good idea to me...
