Just had a similar thing happen with me. Python wasn't the best language for the job and I had already written a prototype. Trouble was that at least one member of the team really didn't want to learn a new language so we said fuck it and decided to do it in Python. While I wish we had chosen the best tool I can see that a team member being viscerally opposed is a bad enough con to override all the pros of the language selection. It sucks but it's reality.
