Making xfce4-panel plugins in Python?

Hey all,

I'm working on a plugin that is supposed to be like xfce4-i3-workspaces
plugin only written in Python3, because that plugin doesn't support
transparency, theming from the config, and background color. I also don't
know C yet. Only I'm having trouble finding a library to write the plugin
portion of my program in.

There's this mirror here of xfce4-rss-plugin written in Python2, so it
seems like it can be done. None of the libraries for that are found in
either python-pip or pacman on Arch though. Furthermore something called
"pyxfce" seems to have a page that's gone.

Is there no Python3 library that can interface with xfce4?
