in case anyone is curious about what is required to build, I have
attached a diff.gz that fixes the problems under discussion here.
I cannot help but note that the overall quality of the module is fairly
poor: #495025 raises some doubts, in particular since the classes are
not self-contained.
It is surprising that a python module segfaulting when not enough
parameters are passed to methods is considered to be of adaequate
quality for testing or stable when well-established alternatives like
PIL exist.
The way the python boost detection failure was handled upstream or the
arbitrary increasing of the minimal python version is also not exactly

Kind regards
