And? An optimal chroot on Hurd would use something similar, tailored to
Hurd. It would be better to have two slightly different implementations
for the Hurd and Linux, rather than one weaker implementation. In
reality, it's not much of an issue if it's Linux-only, as there aren't
many nameservers running the Hurd.
Debian BSD and Lose32 are still vaporware, and a bunch of stuff won't
work on them already. I plan to lose no sleep worrying about what will
and won't work on them until they actually exist (and probably not even
then for Lose32).
