Never say never but.... The smallest thing I've seen Python run on was 
an early Palm Pilot and that was way more powerful than a calculator.
So I doubt if you will find anything. 

I don't even know how you would begin, there is no OS as such and 
no available compilers with which to build Python on the TI84. The 
only folks who could even contemplate doing it would be the peple 
who built the calculator in the first place I suspect.
