I just showed the simple "hello world" translator to a fellow student who does 
FUSE stuff, and the reaction was 'wow, that's cool'. 

More exactly what he does is creating a FUSE library which can interpret 
transparently represent files as directories (with much pain). 

After he did a presentation about that, I ssh'd to my private computer, 
started qemu via X11-forwarding (pain and suffering - slow!) with my Hurd 
installation and just did

$ cat hello
$ setrans hello /hurd/hello
$ cat hello
"Hello World"
$ settrans -g hello
$ cat hello

And he was quite impressed, since he could directly see the potential in that. 

Even though I did it over X11-forwarding with a possible command rate of 2 per 
minute or so. 

So I think that's definitely a way to get people interested in the Hurd. 

I thought I'd share the experience with you :) 

If anyone is interested in his research papers on FUSE performance, justs ay 
so. I have his OK to pass them on.
