It's BSD-style, as others have pointed out.

I like Python very much myself, it's one of my favourite
programming languages.  In fact, it's installed on all of
my machines, and I wrote a few web pages advocating Python
and introducing it to beginners [*].

Having said that -- In my opinion, there's no good reason
to include Python in the base system (no matter whether
it's DragonFly or FreeBSD).  Python is not required by any-
thing else in the base system.  If you would like to use
Python, installing it as a package (from source or binary)
is very trivial.

Best regards
