That question I can't answer.  As well for Hurd/Coyotos.  But I know that
both Marcus and Neal don't have a lot free time at the moment, so they
can't propose HurdNG related right now.  Even ``worse'', the Google
Summer of Code is about writing code, which is a bit difficult since the
HurdNG is still in the planning / design phase.

If someone thinks that it is feasible and wants to work on (or mentor)
porting the current Hurd over to a different micro kernel than Mach, feel
free to speak up.

That was the only way I had in mind.  Nevertheless we need to get it
rolling this week.
