The original tool that was based on OLPC build tools was written as sheel scripts and wasn't meant to be published. It was used for a early release for Fedora Core 6.

Ah, now there's an answer which makes sense.

Red Hat uses python heavily in many of its tools so there is developer comfort and preexisting bindings for most of the tools in Fedora.

Yes, I'm aware that Red Hat is rather Python-centric.

The partial rewrite in python provides the ability to install to hard disk, integration with yum API (python) kickstart (via pykickstart) and Anaconda (which is PyGTK).
