It may be interesting to note that some projects have an automated coding standard enforcement. Due to the wide range of compliance in the aforementioned PEAR repository, a tool was developed to automatically parse code to ensure compliance with certain standards. The package is called PHP_CodeSniffer [1] and apparently works just fine. There is also a proposal page with comments [2].
