Jepp, exactly (yay!)

The state looks nice, but I assume it's not that well tested... 

From the Readme: 

* How To Use
  Translators linked against libfuse/Hurd don't work exactly like on
  the Linux operating system. To be more precise: you need to install
  them using settrans.

  Some filesystems check for the availibility of a command line
  argument, which they want to pass to libfuse, and simply fail, if
  you don't supply it. This is because on Linux you call the
  translator as a program as such and specify the mount-point as the
  first argument. 

  If the fuse-based translator insists on that argument, just provide
  any useless information (maybe the correct path). This one will not
  be treated (at least by libfuse). 

  The filesystem will be put on the node you provide to the settrans
  command. Anything else is not of any interest.

  Filesystems that try to export more than one filesystem (I don't
  know of any example, sorry, but these are generally supported by
  Linux's FUSE) will fail on the Hurd. This is because of the settrans

Best wishes,

Ein Mann wird auf der Straße mit einem Messer bedroht. 
Zwei Polizisten sind sofort da und halten ein Transparent davor. 

        "Illegale Szene. Niemand darf das sehen."

Der Mann wird ausgeraubt, erstochen und verblutet, 
denn die Polizisten haben beide Hände voll zu tun. 

Willkommen in Deutschland. Zensur ist schön.
