ok, i see I misread [1] and didn't notice that DOT was in the default tokens

actually this (allowing line break after DOT) was allowed in the
checkstyle-5.1 rules that we have been using in FOP, so the new proposal to
disallow line break after DOT is a new change (which hasn't yet been
implemented); so it isn't really revering a change;

in any case, i see that only 12 new errors are produced by disallowing line
break after DOT, and, since i don't have a strong preference on this issue,
i will go ahead and add the new restriction along with fixes for these 12
