It seems like programs that do support TPV generally use the "other" wcs library . Does anyone know if support for TPV is planned for wcslib?

I believe Mark Calabretta is limiting his wcslib to implementing the WCS standard. TPV, like SIP , is a registered convention but is not a part of the official standard.
As I understand it, there's some modification done to Calabretta's library in astropy.wcs to support SIP. Michael Droettboom is the expert on the details.
I have code that translates between SIP and TPV  that I'd like to incorporate into astropy.wcs, but there's some paperwork to push through to be able to release it.
