This basically means modifying the fileset in the pmd task. Shouldn't be 
too difficult to include all plugin sources with a single <include>

That was actually Doug's idea (and I agree with it) to stop the build 
file if PMD complains about something. It's similar to testing -- if 
your tests fail, the entire build file fails.

Maybe in the initial phase, but I'd strongly recommend integrating it in 
the main build. PMD is quite fast and doesn't add much delay to the process.

Yes, it's possible but I didn't play with it. I can't do it today, but 
maybe during the weekend. If you're faster than me, Piotr, let me know 
so that I don't waste the time. Thanks.
