I have used the boost library to use Python and C++ together. In my opinion
this is the most powerfull language combination available at the moment.
Beside some very specialized things (you will still need SQL to query a
database) I don't know of any problem that I could be solved faster and
cleaner in other languages.
Another important 'pro' of python is the free choice of how to develop code.
You can 'hack' a small script together very fast and don't have to care
about OO programming, but in larger projects you have all OO features
available. Generic programming is also no problem. I hate languages like
Java which force you to use only on paradigma.
