True, but you're going to need (most of) boost anyway.

I've just put up a circle-ci job for Boost.Config that runs the current
inspect program over the library.  It also re-builds the docs first, so
I get a check that documentation change PR's will a) build and b) won't
cause inspect regressions.

It runs really quick too - total time including downloading
prerequisites is about 5 minutes.


And the yml is here:

Of course if the python version is in some way better, I'll happily just
switch over.
