-start nitpicking-
Correction: Only *work* does. It need not be hard work, as it can also be fun 

When many more people should join to have fun hacking on the Hurd, that should 
equal fewer people working really hard (and might even archieve more, since 
having fun is a very efficient way of working). 

The work I do with the news is not *hard* work, since it is also fun to me, 
but it is work nontheless (and I hope it helps the Hurd, for example by 
getting more people join in having fun hacking on the Hurd :) ).

I didn't yet try it (since I can't program in Lisp), but the example 
translators look like it's quite useful (I didn't yet test them): 

- tmpfs: http://bitbucket.org/ArneBab/cl-hurd/src/tip/examples/tmp-
- zip: http://bitbucket.org/ArneBab/cl-hurd/src/tip/zip-translator/zip-
- irc: http://bitbucket.org/ArneBab/cl-hurd/src/tip/irc-translator/irc-

Along with namespace based translator selection, We should now be able to do 
things like this (might require smaller modification, since I didn't test 

$ ls blah.zip,,unzip.lisp


If you test them, please tell me the results! 

Best wishes,
