Would anyone like to implement for python-mode.el whatever
nice features python.el may have?  Barry, could you make a TODO list?

You've got this backwards.

Emacs includes python.el, written by Dave Love, about which there is
no legal problem.

python-mode.el is the alternative, which has several contributors
including Andreas R. This has never been included in Emacs.

There is no legal problem affecting python.el distributed with GNU


Don't forget that there was a peck of code that Dave Love took from python-mode.el in his python.el.  Although he acknowledged it in the comments he used inline, if some of it was from Andreas, maybe rms is correct and python.el will have to be sidelined.
