  As I'm not the official maintainer of GNU Mach, Thomas and/or Roland
should answer that. But...

  I don't know if the concept MOM is really useful (MOM might make the
overall performance poor, MOM might not take advantage of some
microkernel-dependent features, etc.), but it is quite interesting and
should be investigated. If it turns out to be very useful and very
powerful, it will be a breakthrough in Hurd because some people want
to run Hurd on the top of Fiasco rather than to improve GNU Mach. I'm
one of them. ;-)
