I am not interested in religious discussion, but I see that you have

It's all free software here, so you are invited to work on that.
If you have something working, we can check if we want to adopt it
for the Hurd. The bigger the change, the less likely is it that it
will be adopted soon or at all.

I am most interested in something that works and will be done by someone.
I am not so interested in wishful thinking and major redesigns. I am even
less interested in a language discussion of any sort. But the Hurd exists to
allow for everyone to be happy. Everything in the Hurd is optional, so you
can build on top of the existing stuff and hope that enough people recognize
the value of the way you are going and follow.
