I am not sure if popularity contests are just based on technical
merits/demerits alone. I guess, less people here could care less for
popularity, but more for good tools in python land. So if there are
things lacking in Python world, then those are good project

What I personally feel is, the various plug-and-play libraries are
giving JavaScript a thumbs up and more is going on web world front-end
than back-end. So, if there is a requirement for Python programmer,
there is an assumption that he should web techs too. There are also
PHP/Ruby/Java folks who also know web technologies. So, the web tech
like (javascript) gets counted 4x time.
