This is where the hurd stores the translator information in the file
system itself.  So, if you mount a filesystem on /home, that filesystem
itself may have mount points (translators) listed in the filesystem
itself, which are activated automatically when accessed.  In Linux, you
have to explicitly call each mount point.  This allows you to not have to
put all mounts explicitly in /etc/fstab, and just rely on them
"autoloading".  Of course, you don't even have to do that, if you don't
want your mount points fsked.
