... and so on.
Aren't you going from complex to complicated now?
The only reason for doing it with a new kernel must be that it is easier to 
work with the new kernel?
So, if this project is sensible, then l4-hurd will be ready before mach-hurd, 
Even without a 'port' but a native implementation?

Is there a place where I can get documentation on L4 IPC?

I am looking for a kernel that has a very small number of very intuitive 
synchronized queue functions, and
the Mach 'mailbox' methaphore is certainly not intuitive :-)

Thanks, Atle
