I guess if you think that implementing gmail in Java is not using Java much.

Google has written and extensively uses the following Java libs:

Guice -
Hadoop -
Google Collections -

No doubt Google uses a boat load of python too -- probably more in
relation to Java.  But I wouldn't say that Google doesn't use Java

Not to say that this announcement of using Python as the initial
language for GAPE isn't huge.  It is.  Hooray for Python!
