Of course I accept that development in python has a lot of advantages, and
the language is not new to me. I was more concerned about the fact that
development in C++ could yield better expansion of the native API so more
things can be built over.

In case we need to complete the task of finishing the Processing framework
in Python, it would make summer even better :)
