Yes, that is how many companies do this and have for a long time
(Canonical does this a lot). But that puts all the work on you, and you
can not share the results of the tool with anyone, so you are forced to
do the work to fix problems the tool reports, which feels really wrong
when you are dealing with a scan of a public source tree...
