  Description     : Python code analysis tool

Prospector is a tool to analyse Python code and output information about
errors, potential problems, convention violations and complexity.

It brings together the functionality of other Python analysis tools such
as pylint, pep8 and McCabe complexity. More information and a complete
list of supported tools is available on the documentation site.

The primary aim of Prospector is to be useful 'out of the box'. A common
complaint of other Python analysis tools is that it takes a long time to
filter through which errors are relevant or interesting to your own coding
style. Prospector provides some default profiles, which hopefully will
provide a good starting point and will be useful straight away, and adapts
the output depending on the libraries your project uses. 

It would be nice to have this available to help check one's own Python
