Hi all,

I'm just an sneaker in many lists but... does Hurd support introspection?  
Or has any plan to support it? In that case there could be an introspection 
translator for supporting such fs constructs (all by free with a single 
translator... after paying the cost of implementing introspection, of 
course :)), but the base code would still be all RPC-based.

Just a quick thought through a quick list read.
