I think it's a little misleading to represent python as ``1000+ files of dependencies'' It is, at best, one dependency, and I'd imagine it'd be very common to be installed on any system being used for development.

        Is it possible to run Ubuntu without python?

I agree with most of what you said, and I agree that it just feels wrong to have to install a wrapper to use a tool because the base tool doesn't cover some common cases, but the problem is not so much the list of dependencies. The dependencies I had for installing tla in the first place were much larger than any wrapper I've used to date.
