Can this ramdisk be a regular hurd translator? Or does it have to
be a special beast because the full system isn't up and running? I'm
guessing it must be the hard one (anyone care to venture a guess?),
because it seems like a ram disk would be one of the easier translators to
make. I'm sure this has probably been discussed before, so I'll google
around to see what I can come up with.
