Is there really anything to be gained by referring to the "SpamBayes
development team" via some cryptic name? You can call use the SDT if you
like.

Should the Python developers likewise get some cryptic name?

Yes, there is something to be gained: mindshare.

A simple catchy memorable team name could work wonders for showing
potential users that this excellent open-source software product was
produced a team of real people, using the worlds best development
language And produced by people who have a pythonic sense of humour.
Off the top of my head suggestions include

- The Python Anti-Spam Cabal
- The Flying Circus
- The SPAM Vikings (*)
- The Knights who go Nih
- The Ministry of Funny Software
- Masters of the pythonic time machine (probably too pretentious)
