I can well understand that for the build itself, but as this is an additional tool, why there would be resistance for it?

One of the nice things of python code is that you don't need to (cross-)compile it, it works as-is on any Linux/architecture (which has python interpreter).

in part, because when you are trying to bootstrap a new machine you don't have all the tools ported to the new platform yet.

it's hard to run python on a machine that python hasn't been ported to.
