As far as I know, people is working on using mach since a long long time,
(7 years?), so I'm afraid that we will have to wait again a long time 
before we had Hurd up and running with another kernel.

By the way, what about exo kernels? I saw there's a lot of information edited
at the MIT, but I couldn't compile the system yet. It really seems to be
a good thing.
