Recently Bolek applied checkstyle rules to whole GateIn portal project 
with all project modules. So it's definitely possible. I don't know the 
details and I think that he will have more input on this but what we 
have in GateIn is:
1) Separate module called "build-config" here 
It contains only pom.xml file with configuration and checkstyle file 

2) In main parent pom.xml is the configuration of checkstyle plugin in 
"plugin-management" section and plugin is enabled in "plugins" section. 
See https://github.com/gatein/gatein-portal/blob/master/pom.xml

3) Directory with all ide configs is available in separate directory of 
GateIn project here 
https://github.com/gatein/gatein-portal/tree/master/ide-configs .

4) Bolek somehow enforced reformatting of whole project to align all 
Java and XML files with new rules. Not sure how he exactly did it... But 
seems to be good idea to do it in Picketlink as well. From my quick 
browsing I am seeing quite big incompatibilities especially between XML 
files. (For example 4 spaces indentation here 
vs. tabs usage here 
https://github.com/picketlink/picketlink/blob/master/idm/impl/pom.xml . 
Personally I think that using of tabs is hell. Spaces are much better 
because file looks same in various editors)
