Unless I've read something wrong, it looks like the final Python 2 release (2.7.18) should approximate the math constant e:
>>> import math >>> math.e 2.718281828459045
Aka:
Python as 𝑣 → 𝑒 Python ≈ 𝑒
Would be fun to note that in the announcement/docs somehow.

Of note, metafont already has the distinction of being versioned after the digits of e, just like TeX is versioned after the digits of pi.
The relevant parties are aware.
