   - R. Dawe, pointed that you might one to start a new package GNU
     nfsd; It is a good point, as NFS V2,3 and even WebNFS(Defunct ?)
     can be complex, a big beast that deserve its own package.

Can? Do you mean that it is possible to write them in an non-complex
manner?  Or do you mean that implementing everything that NFS2 and/or
NFS3 support will make them complex?

But I really don't see the problem of adding it to inetutils even if
it becomes complex and big, only aslong as someone keeps supporting

   - In any case, it will be your choice 8-), whether you choose UNFS,
     Hurd NFS, some BSD implementation etc ...  But if you want to
     make it a "GNU" package, you will have to resolve the licensing
     issue and it can be difficult to get this right at the beginning

These licensing issues (like getting copyright assgiments for all
changes) should be done even if the package isn't a GNU package.

Anyway, picking the nfsd thats in the Hurd gives you the nice bouns of
getting to the hacking bit right away, but it might have the drawback
of having to fix a lot more to get it into an portable state.
