I haven´t done any python, so please excuse if I´m talking out of my lower 
back. It seems to me that python´s popularity comes to a large part from 
the GUI app sector. Sure, Perl has probably more bindings to toolkits than 
python, but to use them you often have to refer to the C API documentation. 
This is rather hard for people without C background. Currently I'd 
attribute this diversion to the differences in the developers´ backgrounds 
of those two (main) communities.
