In fact, I strongly agree with Olaf: Anybody who wants to help with
design issues should make sure they understand the Hurd on Mach well
enough to see the strengths and weaknesses.  In fact, they should also
know POSIX reasonably well, and as many other systems as possible.  But
in particular the Hurd.
