Bazaar is written in Python and requires A Python-2 environment to be
installed on a system using Bazaar.  Doesn't this make Python a GNU
package?  At least it is a GNU required package.

This mean that the success of Python is now a requirement of the GNU

Does this mean that GNU should promote Python over other competing
languages like Perl, Ruby and Guile?
