I've just released a new version (0.3.6) out to pip and the copr
repository which fixes an issue where the inventory was requested more
than once and needlessly do API requests.

This version also introduces a backwards compatibility with the
ansible module, the output from the response were shifted to a
"results" key.

If you have been using cicoclient, please update.
