[development] Coder Style review to RTBC (was RTBC - how does it work?)

There's been mention of style.pl, but IMHO coder does a better job.  Am I
reading that a hookable version of the coder style review has potential to
being plugged into the RTBC process?  If so, I'll create an issue to gather
people's ideas on how this should work.  

I'm thinking that the system would need to checkout the latest head, apply
the patch, run a hookable version of the coder style review, return a status
(TRUE/FALSE or ranking 1-10, 10 being good), and store the full text results
for display.  This probably shouldn't be done on the d.o architecture for
performance reasons.

IIRC there is a SoC projcet which deals with issues like this. But
frankly: Coding style is usually the least issue with a patch.
