Investigate source code auto-formatting tools

Style checkers are nice, but it would be useful to be able to run our source through a "beautifier" such as  Jalopy to more quickly achieve a uniform coding style.

  • Severity set to serious

The current plan is to declare our code style appropriately in Eclipse, so that its code formatter can be used to this end.

In various projects (including ImageJ2, ImgLib2 and SCIFIO), we are using Eclipse for code formatting and cleanup. Using any other beautifier such as Jalopy mostly just introduces the possibility of "style skew" so let's avoid it.
