I can see a number of advantages in having separate release dates, version
numbers and names for the Hurd releases.
1. Being a new os the release cycle will probably be shorter for the
first couple of years.
2. This would emphasise that the Hurd is a different os even though it is
another flavour of "not unix".
3. There would be no need to coordinate the releases of GNU/Linux and the
Hurd. This could be a problem as new architectures are added to the Hurd
and are ready before the next release of GNU/Linux is due.
IMHO the pool system is idealy suited for such a scheme.
