Assuming good faith (which, I'm aware, may be dangerous):

 - Python is popular, especially on Linux; every distro ships with
Python support.

 - Python is fairly well standardized; within each Python major version,
scripts generally just work with newer versions, and regressions are
treated as bugs.

 - Python upstream contributed to its inclusion.

I note that nothing in your missive gives me any reason to believe that
this was the wrong decision.  Indeed, it's remarkably evidence-free.
The closest you come is the cite of Luke Kanies, but sadly there's no link.

At the risk of prolonging a useless conversation, might I ask what your
goal was in making these comments?
