pyxfce and textdomain

The answer maybe here:

Since python's gettext API only emulates the GNU gettext C library and
xfce4.util.textdomain() initializes the GNU gettext C library (not python's
gettext), python's gettext is not initialized at all if gettext.bindtextdomain()
and gettext.textdomain() are not called (I'm not sure if anything I'm saying
makes sense).

If this is correct, couldn't we have xfce4.util.textdomain() reimplemented in
Python, instead of delivering the call to the C function xfce_textdomain()?
Should I file a bug against this?
