Do I Need Python?

http://www.linuxquestions.org – I'm just a desktop end user; On line banking, email, Youtube, IM, music, etc. The regular stuff. Can I get rid of Python? I don't program anything. Don't plan on it. Never gave it even a fleeting thought. Do I need it? Does any other program or app depend on Python? Can I make a clean sweep of it? And if I can, what's the best way of doing it? By the way, I'm using Debian/Squeeze. (HowTos)
