To me, it makes sense to use the best language for any given task and 
that isn't always the same language (great as Python is). Certainly web 
developers work in many different languages. A lot of my websites are a 
mix of HTML, XML, CSS, Javascript, SQL, PHP, Python, Bash shell scripts, 
and various other odds and ends such as Prolog or LISP which make 
specific jobs easier. Trying to do everything with one programming 
language is like trying to build a house with only a screwdriver.
