And the same to you.

Actually, both region-active-p and use-region-p are explicitly
documented to pay attention to transient-mark-mode.  These two
functions exist to allow applications to change their behavior when an
active region (not just any region) exists.

If python-mode wants to act on region regardless of
transient-mark-mode, it should look at the mark, and not use these two
functions.  They are not meant for that use case.
