'min(python)' seems appropriate too, though it's more verbose.

In the animal kingdom, 'Python' is a genus, and its species have names
like, e.g., 'Python natalensis' or 'P. natalensis'. Perhaps you could
add 'P. minimalis' to the genus? 'P.min.' for short.

Or if you prefer honouring the language's comedic roots, perhaps an
Austin Powers reference: 'Mini-P' ...
