(assuming you mean "every" rather than "any" above)

The goal of ubuntu-desktop isn't to collect packages which are needed on
pracitcally every Ubuntu system (that's more ubuntu-minimal).  Its goal is
to provide a desktop system which is useful to many types of users.  One of
these types of users is a Python developer, or a user who is learning to
program in Python.
