Actually, I got that feeling from Jeroen's mails. That was the main reason
I sent this mail, not because I think or feel that the line is there.

After all, I'm not involved in the Hurd port in any way.

The way I understand Jeroen's mails is "GNU Coding standards are the way
to go; everything else is braindead". If that understanding is incorrect,
then forget everything I mailed on the subject; if not, then I feel you
(Jeroen) should implement GNU's coding standards somewhere else. Debian
has its own "Coding Standards", and they're different from what GNU
says. The Hurd port should implement Debian's policy wherever possible,
and issue policy amendments through proper channels where not instead of
saying that Debian's policy is braindead, and ignoring it.

Again, this is based on what I understood from Jeroen's mails, not on
anything else.
