Although I believe you are right about this (being able to deliver on time
with Python), I'm curious how you sold that argument to them.  

If you haven't done a trial project in Python in the company, are they 
going on faith in you, or on some more scientific basis?  Knowing what
worked for you might help others in similar situations.
