This is an issue I have been pondering for years now, to no avail: Does
promoting new Hurd variants do more harm or good in the end? It does
good, because it awakens new interest. It does harm, because it leads
people believe that the existing implementation is obsolete and not
worth working on.

It's probably more about communicating things right, than about leaning
towards one or the other extreme...
