Badge of the Code Analysis (FxCop) like a 'Project status badge'

While I was thinking about the problem with .NET 4.0...

hmm., it will be helpful for team etc. and this as part of the CI should be a more convenient
but yes, this features are really for some new additional service like a Code Climate, SonarQube and similar

However, this can be easier - i.e. this already exist with FxCop, right ? for example:

Using "CodeAnalysis" task from assembly "C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Microsoft\VisualStudio\v12.0\CodeAnalysis\.\FxCopTask.dll".
Task "CodeAnalysis"
Running Code Analysis...
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\Team Tools\Static Analysis Tools\FxCop\FxCopCmd.exe /outputCulture:1033 /out:"bin\Release\vsSolutionBuildEvent.dll.CodeAnalysisLog.xml" /file:"bin\Release\vsSolutionBuildEvent.dll" /reference: ... /ruleSet:"=MinimumRecommendedRules.ruleset" /rulesetdirectory:"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\Team Tools\Static Analysis Tools\\Rule Sets" /rule:"-C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\Team Tools\Static Analysis Tools\FxCop\\Rules" /searchgac /ignoreinvalidtargets /forceoutput /successfile /ignoregeneratedcode /saveMessagesToReport:Active /timeout:120

Then all messages we can see in 'Compilation messages' for example:

warning CA1060: Microsoft.Design : Because it is a P/Invoke method, 'HProcess.GetSystemDefaultLCID()' should be defined in a class named NativeMethods, SafeNativeMethods, or UnsafeNativeMethods.

So! how about of the simple metrics for this as additional details with the 'Build passing' (Project status badge)

all features exist and need only to think about the statuses or rating for badges. it also maybe as number of issues, ratio, simple QG or Technical Debt etc. :) see SonarQube and others...
and to separate list of Issues from FxCop (currently this all in "Messages")

what you think ?

    I've created BadgesSharp to fill this gap:

    Nowadays it supports DupFinder , FxCop, Plato ando StyleCop badges.

    Take a look:

    hmm, is very interesting :)
    need to check it later

    BadgesSharpCmd.exe - 1.55mb

    please use at least, for providing all your components...
    or, does it already exists in AppVeyor o_O

            - cmd: >
            "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Fxcop 10.0\FxCopCmd.exe" /project:[Your FxCop file].FxCop /out:fxcop-report.xml
            BadgesSharpCmd -o [your GitHub username] -r [your GitHub repository] -a %GITHUB_REPO_TOKEN% -b FxCop -c fxcop-report.xml
