So, being irrelvant, they can go anywhere, as long as the tools can cope?
So, in that regard, Debian policy says that hurd's translators should go in
/lib/modules, as that's where kernel-specific extensions go.
If GNU/hurd were an OS by itself, it could use /hurd. But, the Debian port
should follow Debian Policy, and this says /lib/modules.
