One more thing in the advantage column:

Python, like many other languages, supports assertions.  I am a strong
advocate of the "Programming as contract" concept as introduced by Bertrand

Meyer in the late 1980's in the Eiffel language.  Python supports that
notion, which can help ensure program correctness.
