  Hm, that is one of the things I want to hear. ;)

  Do all of you agree that the basic idea should be to construct a
generic but yet powerful layer and rewrite Hurd on the top of the
microkernel-independent layer? But don't forget that GCC still has
some predefinitions of Mach. We need to consider (1) simply getting
rid of them, (2) replacing them with generic ones (e.g. -DMOM), or (3)
still defining microkernel-specific constants, to allow to implement
microkernel-dependent features.

  BTW, what is the difference between libmom and libvk? I think it is
just what you want to call them. For me, MOM is a better name, because
this is an existing English word. :)
