I am not sure about it, because I only had a quick overview of both, but it seems that mp4h is to generate static pages, while Curl is to interpret code on the client.
I would rather compare it to Yindo <http://www.yindo.com/> which is based on the fine language Lua, allowing it to be light and fast. Unfortunately, development, seemingly on free time of developers, is quite slow...
As somebody else pointed out, it is too bad the Curl name clashes between this language and another fine network tool, cURL <http://curl.haxx.se>. See http://curl.haxx.se/legal/thename.html for some explaination on the subject. It seems they coexist peacefully.

Well, I must admit I believed it, until I re-read the sentence about the Level 1 kit: I first though you have to pay to receive it, but indeed, you just have to register.
Here is the flaw: how to be sure to get code in exchange of the kit?
What prevent you to subscribe and send nothing in return, just to get the camera?
Nice concept though. So nice we wanted to believe in it...
