 What about the design ? I understand in the L4-Hurd thread that the "trust 
problem" is such big that a cap-server have to be construct. Sush server that 
does'nt break the design too ? The first capabilities protocol did'nt need a 
cap server. Now every single capabilitie call have to pass through the cap 
server. Does'nt it's better if the server acquire trust on a client with lony 
one access to the auth server ? And more, the communications between the 
client and the server will be locale to the processor ( if the 2 process are 
local indeed ), i think that's better for a SMP architecture ( less cache 
synchronisations ).

I got it, that's fine.
