    The trouble with SymPy is it's, well, buggy. I tried it years ago and as soon as I got serious I quite quickly ran into problems that I reported, some of which I see they apparently still haven't gotten around to addressing. [1] [2]

    Symbolic math is hard; they have my sympathies. I don't think I could do better. But as long as bugs like these exist, it's going to be hard to convince people to switch away from better tools like Mathematica.

    Scapy is great if you're attacking low level networking protocol stacks like TCP/IP or UDP. In that case, you may be modifying packet headers and such. Otherwise, it's much easier to just use the Python socket module and craft your custom payload in Python. Even better is the pwntools module.
