I dont think Python itself is the problem here. The webframework used at AppEngine is 
(compared to Seaside) more low-level and Servlet like. That's enough for most like web 
applications with a CRUD persistence. 
And copying source files around is what most people are used to today ;)

On the other hand there are nice API's and services (database, mail, URL fetching, ...) and
as Phillipe said - it scales without additional installations. 

You may have seen the 'runtime' property in the app.yaml config file. Google is planning 
to support other languages and runtimes in the future but I think they are currently looking
for technologies like RoR, PHP, JavaScript or Java with similar development style.

Google has no history in using Smalltalk and as you can read in [1] one of the fences 
at Google is the choice of programming language...
