Er, can you elaborate on this desire to get python out?  I'm kind of
confused.  Particularly about why grubby is such a concern.  If you
don't have python, you don't have yum/dnf which means updating your
kernel in your cloud image at _runtime_ is a PITA.  If you aren't
updating your kernels at runtime and are instead relying on the whole
image to be respun (ala Atomic or otherwise) then you don't need
grubby anyway and it doesn't matter what language it's written in.

Secondly, isn't a lack of python in the cloud image going to impact
their ability to be managed via things like

This really kind of baffles me.  I would love to hear the reasoning behind it.
