Thanks for the links.  One of the difficult things about coming up to
speed on the Hurd is that there are so many different websites with
lots of (sometimes conflicting) information.  I didn't know that a
/proc filesystem already existed, but I did look for one.  If I had
known, I might have started from that as a base rather than doing
it from scratch.  The Debian/Hurd site said that "procps" would not
be ported because there was no /proc filesystem and that someone
may in the future might create one.

One question I had was about your list of planned changes.  On there,
you list "Posix shared memory".  Is anybody working on this?  If not,
I'd like to make an attempt at it (I have already started working on
some of it).  If there's already a project partially completed, that
would be better than starting from scratch.  I can't seem to get
my Gimp to work because it lacks shmget/shmat/etc.
