I think scripting like AppleScript is very important. And xml 
interfacing like XUL is a nice feature, but we don't need it at the moment.
But the earlier we integrate something like that, the more resources we 
save. Integrating XUL needs a lot of work, I think a lot of thing need 
to be rewritten.
