Others mentioned "rapid prototyping" already. I see this as one of the
strongest points.

I also find that debugging/testing my C++ algorithms is a lot faster if I
expose the new classes to Python from where they can easily be exercised with
different inputs. Almost all regression tests for my C++ algorithms are written
in Python.
