No, it doesn't. Although we do need a mechanism to pull those "essential
submodules" automatically. I'm thinking of having a file named .essentials
in the root, so that we can then do

    git submodule init `cat .essentials`
    git submodule update

in .travis.yml.

tools/inspect should no longer be necessary. It was a mistake that Jamroot
required it, and that was fixed.
