I know that.  I want to know whether Flycheck can do that, too.  If not,
then we have a strong advantage of Flymake.

By "linter" I mean the outside program doing the checking (like
ESlint).  By "checker", Flymake/Flycheck mean the Elisp interface
between the linter and fly.*.

That's a cool idea.  I am quite tempted to do that.  As usual, time is
the main problem.

I'd be happy to proofread it when the time comes.
