Ah, now I get this. Well, like Bernd already said, it will be a bit hard
for the free programmers to do because you will get flamed even for that
idea because it restricts the programmers freedom. But long-term there
is sure a way to do this if anyone wants to pick that up and wants to
either extend the asyle module or write another plugin. Did anyone do a
research if there is a commandline tool that checks for these rules
already that we could use just like asyle ?


We're not a company, we just produce better code at less costs.
