You mean, import Flycheck over its developer's objections?  I very
much doubt we'd want to do that.  It's the developer's legitimate
right not to allow it.  And even if we did, how will this work once
bug reports will come in, and we will expect/request the Flycheck
developers to handle them?

I simply don't see how something like that can work well enough for us
to make it the endorsed solution.
