I support the idea of including code along side a prospectus.

If there is to be only one language allowed, then I think it should be R rather than Python. R, like Python, is a free, open-source language. However, R has a much bigger user base than Python. An attempt to quantify the size of the user base is at though an accurate estimate seems too hard to come by. Python is not included on that page, but it would certainly not show the support that R has.

Allowing either R or Python might be a better solution than forcing one choice.
