Cocoon CForms currently supports only HTML rendering. Mozilla XUL is a XML
dialect used to construct user interfaces. With XUL is posible to build
more-interactive applications. XUL can provide a front end for cforms.

The new XUL interface will interact with the cform server model at least
as well than current HTML implementation.

This project is one of the user requested enhancements in Cocoon Forms.
The project will allow cocoon community get in touch with Mozilla XUL,
helps to start collaboration between both communities. This will make
Cocoon more popular.
