I would say that targets of these two projects are somewhat different.
XML UI (IIUC) will support static definition of the layout and
functionality in the C++ source code itself, while XUL defines layout
(and some functionality) in the external XML file. It's like compile
time (XMLUI) vs run-time (XUL).
If you ask me, latter is a better approach if done right, but it is very
hard to make all this portable.
