My experience with pylint is that it raises a huge number of false
positive
and false negative reports. These need human filtering to find the gems.
Also beware that pylint imposes style checks that may well conflict with
subversions coding style.

Only trivial code will pass clean.

pychecker is better, but not perfect either.
