Hi Derek,

I also  don't like  Python  (and I prefer Salt  instead of Ansible), but 
Ansible is the wiser option /personal opinion/ .
My reasons  - API change , so your  code will eventually will die.
With Ansible -  a  lot  of people use it and there  is a  high  chance that  
some updates the Ansible module that  will do the job even after the API 

Also,  Ansible is declarative ,  while  python will need more  effort.

Best  Regards,
Strahil Nikolov
