The FSF doesn't employ anyone to work on the Hurd.  Thus, work on the
Hurd is completely driven by volunteers in their free time.  Although
there are some people who actively work on the Hurd, there are not
enough to realize your vision in the very near future.  This lack of
volunteers suggests that there are not a lot of people who share your
vision.  Indeed, even the FSF does not include the Hurd on their list
of high-priority projects.
