Just to clarify a bit further, somewhere in my archives I drew up a
list of 21 things a Boost library must have which were probably easy
to check using libclang. Naming conventions, proper use of a DECL
macro for visibility, proper use of the virtual keyword and so on.

My only real concern really is why keep such tooling Boost only when
it could be contributed to the clang static analyser. It's also
boring and tedious work writing and debugging such "style checkers".
I also feel surprise that no corporate sponsor hasn't sponsored such
tooling yet, and that makes me suspicious if they are as easy to
implement as I think.
