IMHO we should use savannah (savannah.gnu.org) instead of sourceforge.

I really dislike fiaco because it is written in C++, IMHO C is better for
a microkernel and the GNU Coding Standards also recommends using C. Hazelnut
uses a few bytes of C++ which are easy to remove AFAICS, so it's a
better choice if you ask me. Writing an own L4 variant is also option.
