Code Inspection: Variable declarations are not at the scope start

Checks that 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, having them defined at the top of the scope helps represent this behavior in the code.
