This work is still ongoing.  The primary docs are at
http://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/PyXPCOM, and the #pyxpcom channel on
irc.mozilla.org does sometimes see some action.  The mozilla trunk has
Python in XUL working, and is being used by at least a few people.  The
ongoing work is fairly sporadic, but is currently aimed at closer
integration of Javascript and Python with the DOM - notably enabling
"native" attributes on DOM objects to be accessed by other languages.
