Won't requiring Python put off some library authors from applying a run the inspect program to their own code?

(Having the Python program will be valuable for providing an externally visible and usable list).

My experience is that one needs to work through ones library fixing each issue and re-running the inspect program - and re-running ones examples and tests to make sure one hasn't screwed up 😉

Waiting for the CI system to catch up with that is intolerably slow.

I think that clearing the compliance hurdle only requires some tweaks to the existing inspect program - and some improvements in documentation telling exactly how to run locally, and what to do to be compliant.
