we're already using python to do functional testing of cosmo, with the
hammer and silmut tools.
the people who have the bandwidth and interest in working on
functional testing for cosmo have chosen to use python. at the end of
the day, they are the ones who get to make the choice, since they're
putting in the effort.

that describes me :) if i was writing the functional tests, i'd have
done them in perl, because i have a lot of experience with it and
there are great testing tools in that environment as well, but i'm not
putting in the major effort - python guys are. so i'm reading "dive
into python", and hopefully i'll be able to contribute to functional
testing at some point.
