Code Inspection: 'var' declared not at the beginning of a function

Checks that declarations of local variables declared with var are at the top of a function scope.

By default, variable declarations are always moved ("hoisted") invisibly to the top of their containing scope when the code is executed. Therefore, declaring them at the top of the scope helps represent this behavior in the code.
