Yeah, I know.

While the decision to use Python was made before I was active in GDB
(look in the archives around Jan 2007 for the thread), and while I am
actually not a fan of Python, I do basically agree with this choice.  My
reason is that I think it is important to have a popular language with a
wide variety of available libraries.  Python is a very easy sell to
various GDB user communities.
