Or a dream :) 

The difference from a pure wishlist is that there's an order to the parts: 
Without earlier ones the later make little sense. 

That's also where the part I thought of when I awoke differs from the rest: 
Gentoo GNU/Hurd would make sense for me without sound support. 

But X11 without sound doesn't offer an environment where I could conveniently 
develop. The same goes for hardware support: As long as there's no X11, a 
dual-boot Hurd doesn't make sense for me. And Linux device drivers only offer 
an advantage *to me* when I already have my essential GUI tools (e.g. 

But please keep in mind that this is only about me! 
I don't want to imply any objective usefulness of the Roadmap for organizing 
the development of the Hurd apart from providing a list of features which 
depend on each other to be useful for one single person (me). 

Also it doesn't take into account any part of the niches discussion. 

The sole reason I posted it is that I dreamt of it and wanted to share it - 
maybe others dream similarly, and maybe not. 

But to leave the "but I did the right thing!" part: 

        What would be a useful Roadmap for you? 

Best wishes,
