Not to my knowledge. It is turing complete, but so is REXX.

The english Wikipedia actually calls it "general purpose", which is wrong in my opinion - german Wikipedia says "universell" - that is closer to turing complete than general purpose, which would be "universell einsetzbar".

python.org states:
Friendly & Easy to Learn
Python is a programming language that lets you work quickly and integrate systems more effectively.
Python can be easy to pick up whether you're a first time programmer or you're experienced with other languages.

that sums it up quite good.
