     That is somehow possible under Linux too with FUSE.   Even if you don't
     use FUSE you don't need to know everything about the kernel but just
     some components (and IMHO ignorant developers should stay away from the
FUSE however, has some big drawbacks.  For example file locking is not possible.
Last time I changed, that was also the case with Hurd. (Or at least partial 
file locking wasn't possible).  Perhaps it has improved since I chacked.

Anyway, I would be in favour of word in  the Hurd continuing, even if it's
only an academic project.
