Yes, nearly all the complex, important stuff (as well as some not so complex
and not so important stuff) is implemented in Python.  I feel that python is an
ideal language for something growing as quickly as Portage.  

We also have some legacy bash code as well, and in the future it's very likely
that we'll move a lot of the package management and package database parts (as
they become more stable and defined) to C++ for better performance.

When Portage is at around version 2.5, it's likely that we'll have some python,
some C++ and some bash as well.
