We've been trying to do this on the Unity Indicators and I wrote a small
automake fragment to test for them.  It's a little bit hacky, but it
works and makes sure we don't regress.  I'd love for it to get used and
improved in other projects.

That looks really useful! Perhaps it could get included in gnome-common
and then used in GNOME projects?

Looks good to me! Ted or Philip, can you file a bug against gnome-common? If there is to be a GNOME Goal for this (and the other checks, such as ‘spaces before ellipsis’) it would be good to get gnome-common to offer some assistance.
