I don't think it's an argument at all.  The guy probably had something
more specific in mind but didn't express himself well, and it might
have even been a real issue.  Python is not, unfortunately, the
easiest language to deploy applications in.

I don't think there is any deployment difficulty so great that I would
ever chose VBscript, but opinions might differ.
