Check out libps, which is part of the Hurd.

Right, I don't think Mach gives this info. But if you had a task id,
there is a function to convert task ids into pids in the proc
interface (just FYI). I don't actually see what you'd want to have
this info for anyway.

I don't know what IP accounting is.
