Python does two good things: (1) scripting as a glue to put together many components together to do data analysis, and (2) array/tensor programming. S2 does those as well but better.
The problems with Python are: (1) scripting or interpreted language is slow, and (2) it is very difficult to deploy code to other devices due to numerous versioning of dependencies and an assorted array of libraries in FORTRAN, C, C++, etc. S2 is fast and runs on the 15 billion devices with a JVM by copy-and-pasting jars.
