how about translating the underlying meaning?

that leaves us, for example in german, with 
"Htrs von UNIX-Ersetzenden Daemonen" and
"Hued von Tiefe Repraesentierenden Schnittstellen" 

this renders the question which article to use rather senseless and
thereby solved. the only very deep question that remains is how to
transscribe the 'H' in language that do not provide this outstanding
character ;-)
