The problem is that the author himself mixes Mozilla XUL and the
luxor-xul of Gerald Bauer. There is a long fight from the Mozilla
community against Gerald Bauer, because he spreads confusion with a
technology which is named XUL, but is not (Mozilla) XUL (and the
article is a good example for this confusion).

But it's true, that you can get access to Mozilla via pyXPCOM and
maybe the Mozilla community will use Python as scripting language for
the front-end (currently only JavaScript is supported).

Can't wait for the day. I wonder how much better progress you could make
using Python as the scripting language for the front end instead of
having to work around javascript...
