I don't see why not but I also question if it is a good idea.  Once you
have all your objects and low level methods written in Python it just
makes sense to re-use them rather than trying to duplicate the
functionality in another language.

Of course, sometimes we don't have control over our entire environment
so yes, you can mix them if you have to.
