The metaphore seems quite right!

Some of its most significant features (Aquiition, ExtensionClass) are
written in C and mess with guts of python interpreter.

See for example PostgreSQL - it has C, SQL, PL/SQL, TCL, Perl, Ruby and 
soon python as its server-side programming languages, with no real
about weather to include yet another language - if you dont
how to use it you just ignore it ;) 
And it was originally written in lisp ;-9
