  I'm sorry, but GRUB is a top priority for me (if you see the amount
of patches and bug reports for GRUB, you can understand what I mean).
The character devices support is desirable, but personally I think
bootstrap is much more important.

  If someone would like to takes over my work on gnumach-char, I
appreciate him/her. I was working on it, and thought that it would be
easier to use OSKit than to develop our own framework. So I recommend
him/her to see OSKit before working on it actually. All of my
snapshots can be found in alpha.gnu.org:/gnu/hurd/contrib/okuji/.
