Meanwhile, I just read about Nix and it sounds really great.
Does it have a downside that isn't obvious?

Nix does seem like a great package manager. If I understand it correctly, a
system using Nix wouldn't have the usual directories like /bin but I'm sure
that programs with hardcoded paths could be fixed.

Anyone else?

I would just like to chime in and point out that Debian already maintains a (very) large collection of binary packages that run on the Hurd:

Probably a good idea to take their work into account as well :)
