Impossibly hard. I've been bugging Mike about this for literally years.
As you can see no 'make checkheaders' FATE test exists to date.
Also, I'm working on an autobuilder at work that may get extended into
a more fancy continuous integration solution at some point. My idea
was to use FATE, both sides should be able to profit from that.
Unfortunately Mike brushed off my request for source code with
"The backend code is... not something that anyone should ever view."
which IMO is an untenable situation. We should not use proprietary
tools in such a central position.
