Poor Man’s Visual Studio Cppcheck Integration

Cppcheck is a good tool to have in your arsenal.  Anything that helps me avoid stupid mistakes is very welcome.  The problem is that if you use Visual Studio, you either have to use the separate Cppcheck GUI or pay an arm and a leg for something like Visual Lint.  If you want a more convenient way to run Cppcheck on your code, but don't want to shell out $200 for the privilege, there's a fairly easy way to do a simple integration.
