They are not for D9, they are for the computer (if I understand) and they aren't written in C since Python is portable.
I mean, C code IS portable, but hey, Python is easier, should work out of the box without the need to compile the code for the target platform, just make sure a Python interpreter exists and... well.

C is the language used to program the homebrew and compile it to binary format to be run on the console.

Python is used for tools to launch on a computer. It could have been .exe instead of .py, but it would have work only on windows, and you'd needed to compile the sources using a compiler (Visual basic, etc.), but again each computer don't have the same compatibility (VCredist missing, library, dll, 32bit, 64bit, etc. etc.)
so many headheack, just to get "heyyy, I'm on Mac, please how do I compile?"

Using Python is a multi plateform tool solution (not the actual homebrew on console) without the need to compile.

The link you gave are just individual programs you can use if you want.
For the first wiiU homebrew, it was needed to compile homebrew and inject them into a payload exploit. It could have been anything else, java, exe, etc. python is usually chosen for its ease of use.

    There are ways to sort it but they are unpleasant and expensive. Far easier to do a vinyl wrap/cover in electrical tape.

    Can also happen if you leave it in a cold, damp room for years and years.

    Seems like they have a lidl problem on their hands.
