Or even before commit -- it would be nice if it were super easy
to run the ari at any time.  Something like "make check-ari".

On the subject, the Linux kernel has this checkpatch.pl script
that automates checking a patch for common issues.  Porting that
(or rewrite something along those lines) for GNU/GDB would be
super neat, I think.
