I, and obviously, Colomban as well, though indepdent from each other :D,
recently played[1,2] with cppcheck. A small tool for static code
analysis which actually found a few things in the geany-plugins

As I'm currently reworking the system to create the nightly builds, we
could integrate such checks into the nightly builds, maybe run cppcheck
on the sources after the builds and present the results somewhere on

Just an idea.
