Neat, thanks for sharing.

It'd be good to hear from others, but in my view this would be fine to
add to Org proper.
I will say that in general new Babel libraries make me nervous. My
impression is that Babel brings in a good number of bug reports, and a
new library is adding surface to that area [*] while not necessarily
adding eyes and hands. Of course that worry doesn't apply here, as
you're already taking care of ob-python.
[*] And that surface can be quite challenging to deal with because it
is not just Elisp code; it brings in a whole outside language that
other developers may have no clue about.

Well, that's pleasantly few lines of code :)
