There's no good reason, it is just that nobody has yet done the work to
merge things upstream.
This is something we plan to do, though it has been slow going.
Currently, Phil is the main person working on Python stuff, and he has
been focused on bug-fixing.

Nope. Also, I think there is more missing than just Parameter.
