Correction: Only *work* does. It need not be hard work, as it can also be fun 
:) 

When many more people should join to have fun hacking on the Hurd, that should 
equal fewer people working really hard (and might even archieve more, since 
having fun is a very efficient way of working). 

The work I do with the news is not *hard* work, since it is also fun to me, 
but it is work nontheless (and I hope it helps the Hurd, for example by 
getting more people join in having fun hacking on the Hurd :) ).

I didn't yet try it (since I can't program in Lisp), but the example 
translators look like it's quite useful (I didn't yet test them): 

- tmpfs: http://bitbucket.org/ArneBab/cl-hurd/src/tip/examples/tmp-
translator.lisp
- zip: http://bitbucket.org/ArneBab/cl-hurd/src/tip/zip-translator/zip-
translator.lisp
- irc: http://bitbucket.org/ArneBab/cl-hurd/src/tip/irc-translator/irc-
translator.lisp

Along with namespace based translator selection, We should now be able to do 
things like this (might require smaller modification, since I didn't test 
this): 

$ ls blah.zip,,unzip.lisp

:)

If you test them, please tell me the results! 

Best wishes, 
Arne
