Personally, I think it's a good idea to reborn Hurd in Rust, of course,
in that case, it's not Hurd anymore, it'll be a new project with the
spirit of Hurd.

However, there're some pre-conditions before anyone can try this idea:

1. It'll be a great idea to use seL4 which is a better L4, and there's a 
preliminary support
in Rust. IIRC, it's a Rust binding of libsel4, you can extend the seL4
with Rust. But there're lot of missing things to do, compared to other
more complete L4.

2. From GNU's perspective, we should definitely use gcc-rust, however,
there's no mature Rust frontend in GCC. The good news is that someone
are working on it, I'm one of the contributors. However, it's in a very
slow progress.


3. I have some opinions on Hurd, here's my post, just personal premature
ideas, some opinions maybe wrong, welcome to correct me:


Best regards.
