Could we maybe have checkAPIs default to not being run (via an
environment variable or whatever) and then set the buildbot builds
to run checkAPIs ?

In the same way that we use "fail on warning" for C compiles, it seems
to me that this should be sufficient enforcement as long as a build with
checkAPIs enabled causes  a 'fail' if checkAPIs reports a problem.

Or: maybe a way to run checkAPIs only on changed files ?

or only on the diffs as I've implemented in Flawfinder. As it could be used too in a "preventive" way on patches sent to us.

P.S. : I've not taken a look at checkAPI but I guess we could also use flawfinder i.s.o. checkAPI ... as it seems doing the same job. Here is the sourceforge project page :  https://sourceforge.net/projects/flawfinder/
