Guillem ported sysvinit to GNU/Hurd. I just have the nasty habit of

Miquel: IIRC, sysvinit now works perfectly on GNU/Hurd with the exception
of a PID conflict (/hurd/init is pid 1 also). But don't take my word as I
haven't worked on this. Let's see what Guillem says (CCed).

Just in case you need to contact the GNU/k*BSD folks, we're reachable at
