For libthunar, i'm not sure since it does certainly more than just managing mimetypes.
Also I had a look at the thunar wiki, it show this:

"The MIME System should be designed independent of the other components of Thunar, to make it easy to move it to libexo or libxfce4util later on, so other Xfce applications can use it (for example, the panel might want to use it)."

So the best is perhaps to wait the mime-type-system to be implemented and/or ask benny for that.  

Oh, and also I think this is perhaps a little to early to ask this kind of question, since he seems to want to integrate gtk-webcore first. 

Anyway, good luck guy and don't hesitate to ask us for help, even if I can't give you any guaranties ;-).
