The same problem existed in the days when lint functionality was separate
from the C compiler. People just had lint targets in their Makefiles. So
you add a pylint target to your Makefile, something like (GNU make syntax):
PYFILES = spam.py eggs.py cheese.py
pylint.py $< | tee $@
Then all you have to do is remember to "make pylint" periodically.
