Primarily the second, I think.  Guile APIs for the Hurd will be
constructed, but I plan to implement from the security kernel down in
Scheme, the target environment having most of core servers and kernel
running in a single VM process.

How well that works in practice is anyones guess.

This should permit porting the servers without having a Scheme kernel, right?
