Python.org has many great pieces of info which will help you with the port
reading and what not.

Another great feature of python is that if it does turn out to be too slow, it
is fairly trivial to a) replace it with c/c++ code or b) rewrite portions in
c/c++ and use python as glue.  This let's you write the code rapidly, then fix
any performance issues you may run into.

I see no reason why python could not handle this task (or why it would do any
worse than other script languages).  You may end up using a non script
implementation, at least in parts to gain the speed and robustness you seek.
