My understanding is the following: we want users to use the term `check`, since that is more widespread and used by other (non-clang) tools as well. The term `checker` is something like a historical artifact in the developer community of the static analyzer. But if this is not the case, I am happy to change the terminology. But I do want to have some input from rest of the community too :)
