This discussion is being silly. There is no _active_ maintainer that
wants to invest his time working in GNU Mach (and this includes
reviewing patches, and even more important, discussing design issues).
That's ok, we can't force people to work in what they don't want to

So there's only one feasible solution; open a new branch for GNU Mach
and GNU Hurd, and allow the people _who still want to work on Mach/Hurd_
do their own way.
