   That's the point. Until that evaluation reaches something concrete
   and _feasible_, I don't see the need to stop Mach/Hurd development,
   IMHO both projects can work and follow its own way.

I agree partially on the first bit, but I disagree that both projects
can work at the same time.  For the simple reason that Hurd/Mach and
Hurd/L4 (or whatever) are two completely different systems, investing
time in something that _will_ be ditched isn't something people want
to do lightly.

Remeber, it isn't a simple matter of migrating code from A to B.  If
it was, then all would be so much nicer.
