Just FYI, there are a lot of things those systems provide, which can be
reasonably expected from a modern operating system, and which Debian GNU/Hurd
can't do yet. Firewalling isn't nowhere near top of that list.
Which is also reflected by the user lists, on which nobody ever has
asked about firewalling, but many have asked about some other things we
are working on.
Which doesn't mean that we have to fix all of this before a useful
Debian GNU/Hurd system can be released. But hey, we already know that
we are disagreeing on this, right.
