There are two parts for checking values that were configured in "eval":
* jsfunc.evalfield.js: Making transformations for e.g. "date" or "int"
* jsfunc.tbe_editor.js: Checking if a field is not empty for "required"

So, a new eval-property, e.g. "posint", would be a conversion of the
field value to integer (evalfield) and additionally a check if the field
is non empty and greater than zero (tbe_editor).

It would be possible, but I'm not sure about how to set this in the
"eval" property in $TCA.
