"I would be great if some Mozilla officials could comment on KaXul and uXul... Do you plan to sue?"

I'm not a Mozilla official but from what I can tell from their pretty presentation <http://www.staikos.net/~s…tations/August2003/kaxul/>, KaXUL and uXUL follow the XUL specification. As far as I can tell, KaXUL essentailly converts a XUL app into a KDE app, while uXUL takes a XUL app, uses KaXUL to convert it and then runs it. Now if it was a project to convert applications written in some other random XML-based declarative markup language that just happens to bear a passing resemblence to XUL to KDE apps, that would be different because they would be using the XUL name to apply to something that isn't really XUL.
