Re: [rms@santafe.edu: Hurd packager]

    What would make things really easy is if the GNU Hurd was being
    designed so that it would have binary compatibility with Linux.

We would definitely like to support binary compatibility with
GNU/Linux systems.  One way is to trap the system calls that Linux
handles.  Another way is to intervene before things even reach Linux,
by provide compatible versions of GNU libc, so that the same
executable can dynamically use either the libc version that works with
Linux or the one that works with the Hurd.

Either one is a big job.  Would anyone like to work on one of them?
