Since we have now some great research and development related to
virtualization (para-virtualization with xen, pre-virtualization with
afterburn and virtualization support with AMD's Pacifica and Intel's
Vanderpool), running multiple OS's in the same machine is going to get
very common. So, I don't think this should be a Hurd
task. Implementing a free software monitor compatible with Pacifica or
Vanderpool should be a more worth task, IMHO.

Hope this helps you decide.
