Yeah, that's why the project description mentions Hurdextras -- there
are some translators there that really need some love...

I couldn't come up with anything simple that is more closely related to
this task; so the idea was just to do *some* translator hacking, as this
will definitely be necessary for the package manager.

Otherwise, I just remembered that there is another tool in need for some
love: the Hurd "ls" has some rather obvious shortcomings. Probably
should be added to some todo list...
