This is a cut-down VM that only loads an image and runs the leak checker, answering 0 (unix's OK exit code) if the image is free of leaks, and non-zero if it is leaky.  The program takes a -verbose/--verbose argument that will cause it to list the leaks or write a reassuring message if there are none.

I saw that it took 2 seconds to load and check a 1Gb image so it should be fast enough to be used in a CI context.
