Isn't it easier to write:

  port = hurd_file_name_lookup ("/stuff", ...);
  do_foo (port);


  int fd;

  fd = open ("/stuff/ctl", ...);
  if (fd < 0)
  count = write (fd, "do_foo", 6);
  if (count < 6)
  close (fd);

Of course, you could provide the latter as a `do_foo ()' function in the
library, but then, you'd pay the overhead for the textual representation
without even seeing it.
