It's even easier than I thought - I idly open a dosbox and typed Python and lo this came up.

Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.18362.295]
(c) 2019 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

Python 3.7.0 (v3.7.0:1bf9cc5093, Jun 27 2018, 04:59:51) [MSC v.1914 64 bit (AMD64)] on win32
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.

So no excuse here.

But I am still concerned that we are reinventing the wheel here.

What is really lacking from the original inspect program?

(I think it is documentation - `what to do' in particular and I'm making progress with improving that).
