I fully agree with you as I write in open thread mail, in first one of two 
possible solutions: at mach and hurd build time we could launch a defs parser 
which creates a file (maybe /etc/rpc). This file could contains all 
translations (unsignede integer name <-> character name. There's already a file 
with this name (/etc/rpc) which come with rpcd standard installation, it 
contains some standard rpc. Do you agree with this solution? If yes, could I 
develop it?
