AFAICT, there's nothing in python.el that helps figuring out which
project a buffer belongs to, or, say, list all files belonging that
project (which exactly is what project.el does).

python-mode mainly provides functionality to edit individual Python
files, but it's natural to add things that need to know about the
project as well.  Import management is one of them; another interesting
feature would be a Python shell that is not "global" but rather
dedicated to a project (in the same vein as `project-shell').

So I think it makes sense for python.el (and prog-modes in general) to
rely on project.el to implement some more advanced features.
