Coding style conformity (easy and clinical) and quality
(hard and emotional) are only weakly correlated in software.

I think that Ingo sometimes conflates them and he should be more
selective when using the "quality" term.

I think he recognizes this, he just hasn't done much about it.

Ingo, could you please just substitute conformity for quality
in these sorts of posts? Perhaps you could also change the
name of your code-quality script to style-conformity?
