(By analogy with George Orwell's "Thought Police" in "1984") A mythical team of
Gestapo-like storm troopers that might burst into one's office and arrest one
for violating programming style rules. May be used either seriously, to
underline a claim that a particular style violation is dangerous, or ironically,
to suggest that the practice under discussion is condemned mainly by
anal-retentive weenies. "Dike out that goto or the code police will get you!"
The ironic usage is perhaps more common.
