The most useful features are probably the follow and fork, but for a project as big as Python I'm not sure those are going to be used a lot. The question then becomes whether Python development workflow will remain as-is or would more to a "pull-request" model via bitbucket.

If it's negative, then I see no intrinsic value in the main server being on bitbucket.
