AFAICT, the XML config is universal... it should work for any Jalopy 
plug-in in any IDE, build tool or what have you.

The other problem I faced when I was still looking at this is that there 
seems to be some substantial differences in the config format from one 
version of Jalopy to the next.  I may be wrong about that, I could have 
gotten that impression incorrectly, but it did look to be the case. 
Because of this, when I finally did get one plug-in or another to 
generate a baseline rules file, it didn't work with the other plug-in 
because of a version difference.

At one point I think you pointed me at that (or I found it on my own) 
and I tried to use it as a baseline... that's when Jalopy didn't seem to 
be making changes that it should have (or that I at least *thought* it 
should be making) and that's when I kind of gave up on it... that was 
also about the time it was starting to sound like everyone was happy 
with letting IDEA do it anyway, so I didn't explore this any further.
