My vague impression is that quite a bit of the
original "interesting" code was done in Python, but
that most of the serious stuff now is being done
in C or C-like C++, due to the serious performance
challenges handling their current large and growing
load.

Perhaps some of the non-critical path stuff is still
in Python.
