They have used a lot of time and money to find bugs in Python too:
http://www.theregister.co.uk/2006/03/03/open_source_safety_report/print.html

0.32 defects per 1,000 lines of code in LAMP, it says.
I hope they will show such Python bugs, so Python developers can try to
remove them. From the bottom of the article:

>Coverity said it would now engage with open source developers to improve code, and identify potential reasons for why some projects have more bugs than others.<
