I hope that for the Hurd this will only mean, that it will keep improving 
(like every other not-obsolete piece of software). 

And I hope my monthly news on the website can help show people what happens.

Since the Hurd has bindings for using common Lisp for translators, you can in 
fact use Lisp to write part of an OS (the attached snapshot is the version 
from Tue Sep 16 15:50:43 2008 - I had a disk failure which ate a part of the 
repositories history; I already asked Flavio if he still has an intact clone 
lying around). 

Best wishes,
