[development] coder and 6.x core remaining upgrades

Thanks Jeff!  I'd like to clarify one misconception about coder ... it's not
just for coding standards.  The name coder stands for "Code Review", and
code review can take many shapes and sizes.  Coder is a nice platform for
writing "reviews" and "rules" that can be used to look for almost anything.

This email thread is about the 6.x upgrade review.  This review will assist
all of us with the 6.x module upgrades, and hopefully speed up this process.

I've used Coder in the past when cleaning up the VotingAPI code and  
the results were really nice. It's awesome that we're starting to  
apply our coding standards to the core modules that were around  
before those standards evolved. ;)

The #multistep issue in poll is fixed in the $form-state patch; it's  
easy to miss in the mass of stuff there. ;)
