I wish to see jed/jed-common added here or in developer.sh. But note: only
version >=0.99.15 works correctly on hurd. BTW: jed is a really good editor
if you like "user-friendly" editor, but I don't want to start a Holy War

Why bash is not in the initial.sh ?
I think that also rcs is needed.
I suggest to add also gcc-3.0, that is somewhat faster of gcc under hurd.

Probably there are some few packages that can be safely "removed". For example
lbxproxy is not needed if you are not going to use X over slow connection
(serial line). Other non important package are: xnest, xspecs, xvfb (I don't
think that gnumach have any framebuffer support), proxymngr and xfwp.
When I'm saying non important, I mean that usally people don't need.
