I have programmed Delphi for years.. and was pretty much forced to  
move to python for different reasons.

I would go along best with the description of delphi being "old". It  
was great in its time... and had many advancements over others. Still  
has some things that I would dearly love in python... like "skinned"  
gui applications.

As for porting... don't.

Just rewrite them....

Shouldn't be so hard...
