Any links on this?  Presumably this effort is related to XPCOM?

I have been thinking a little about wiring up Mozilla's Javascript
interpreter with Python, probably using SWIG, for web automation purposes
(automatic execution of HTML-embedded JS from Python, with a limited DOM
(mostly stubs), and ability to override event handlers in Python).  This
sounds like it might possibly be relevant to that.
