Because RPC-over-RPC is inherently ugly, and I'm very sure that we don't
want that in actual Hurd interfaces. I may (unwillingly) agree to have
it like that in Mach, for consistency with the preexisting ugly
device_get_status()/device_set_status() RPC-over-RPC Mach interfaces;
but I will violently protest any such uglyness being introduced in
actual Hurd interfaces.
