How about replacing quodlibet with pragha?

I know pragha is not as powerful as quodlibet, e.g. it doesn't do
internet radio or and come with a standalone tagging application, but
there are some things I like about it:
      * It's written in C and has a very lightweight memory footprint
        (much unlike quodlibet, which is written in python).
      * It's using GStreamer now, so it can be easily extended with
        other codecs.
      * It perfectly integrated with Xfce: Take a look at the settings
        dialog and you'll see what I mean. It now even builds against
        exo and supports saving playlists with the Xfce session.
      * It supports hotkeys out of the box, we could drop the patches we
        have for quodlibet in libxfceui4.
      * It just reached 1.0.

What do you guys think? Is it mature enough? Can it compete with
