Not sure about that change... after all we call the Python run-time
the "interpreter" and having the ability to interpret Python
commands at run-time is a major feature in Python - unlike
e.g. C which doesn't support this out of the box.

Something that we should add to that description is the word
"open-source", e.g.

"...and is free, open-source and comprehensively ported."
