As stated in thunar-dev at xfce.org, Adam volunteered to update thunarx-python.
If I correctly understood your suggestion, there was some talks in the
past about merging thunarx-python into thunar (I can't recall when or
where), but this hasn't advanced. I think it's a considerable amount of
effort for little benefit and risky since we are already breaking stuff
(port to gtk3 and API changes) =)
