I looked at the source of the Darwin kernel, but it seems to have almost 
all Mach device support removed from it. So someone interested in running 
the Hurd and Darwin (MacOS X) together should put things from the 
original Mach 3.0 back into Darwin (devices, loading of servers, and 
maybe more), but I'm afraid that won't be easy.
