One beautiful solution will be batching many IPC requests in one context
switch, e.g. (open,read,close).  No concrete idea and no clear vision how it
could be done (even not implemented, but designed).  Of course this is not
the right time to think about it for Hurd, but perhaps in the future...

PS  Disussions about CORBA & Hurd always inspire me :-))))  Merging the
efforts with GNOME project will be A Good Thing (GConf, ...) - I see it as
the most progressive GNU project (Unix sucks, but we'll fix it:-))).
