What do you mean? I gave you a specific example of XUL+Flash in Zulu. Flash
is capable of pretty much any input and output. Remember Flex lets you

is just a bunch tags. So you could have *any* app that can output ascii
files to a Flex server dynamically generate Flash runtime. Just how much
more interop do you need?

MXML or Flash to run XUL or XAML? Macromedia actually said they might
consider running XAML and/or XUL. Again the issue here is not really
