I agree with you. Furthermore, I would suggest porting something like anaconda 
installer to GNU/Hurd, so that even more people could gain interest in 
hacking it. The current state of installation process for Hurd is not too 
good / newbie friendly. It would also be good to port Qt (as far as I heard, 
it has already been done) and KDE to Hurd. If GNU/Hurd/Mach becomes even 
nearly as usable as GNU/Linux, it will gain much more developers. At least, 
that's what I think.

Cheers, cheers :)
