I don't see how using both could make sense. The python portgroup is for
building with a, and it sounds like you're not doing that.

If you include both, I would assume that a number of options have
conflicting defaults and you'd have to override some options manually.
Nothing's impossible, but it could easily end up being more work than
just using one portgroup.
