GitHub pull requests (PR) are nicely handled by Travis CI service
Perhaps, it would make sense to set up Travis for Boost repositories as well.
Then, for every PR submitted to one of Boost repos, a Travis build is performed
and PR sanitisation script could be part of that build.
A nice feature of GitHub+Travis integration is that GitHub PR ticked
will automatically display status of corresponding Travis build,
warning about broken that particular PR is broken, so merge with caution, etc.
