History and laziness I suppose.  My biggest project started out as Tcl
and was switched to Python around 1.5.  Besides, the boys and girls
at Apache have done a great job.  May as well build on that.  Even
if I go with a standalone server I will probably put Apache in front
of it for images, style sheets and other static content.  I also want
to look into writing Apache modules in Python some day.
