I think there's no overwhelming strength/weakness for vlog-mode to
verilog-mode.  Highlighting, code indentation, code alignment,
sensitive lists generation...  It's easy to switch from verilog-mode
to vlog-mode.  Of cource, vlog-mode has some unique features that
verilog-mode does not have.

In fact, I used to hack a lot on verilog-mode.el but the author of
verilog-mode tries to control the source and is not very friendly to
other contributors (It's official website is http://www.verilog.com).
Of cource, that's only my personal impression, maybe very biased.  But
that's the original motivation for vlog-mode: a more open and public
project of and for the Emacs-Verilog community, just like vhdl-mode is
doing now.

Looking at your tarball, I don't see any comparison with it, could you
outline the respective strength/weaknesses?
