Most of that should be gone in Python 3.
There's also the practicality in the sense of "someone has to write the
code". Both are certainly common in every open source developer community,
including python-dev, if you replace "C" by "the right language in the
given context". But I must say that I rarely read either of the two being
used as common meanings for "practicality" on python-dev. That term is very
user focussed in the Python community.
