I'm a fan of Samuel and Justus too, no problem. An Justus raised the
issue of removing Hurd from Debian: Quoting:
"Let's ditch Debian in favor of a less hostile downstream distribution."

And Hurd is fully usable in VMs, hosted by whatever OSes. This can be a
niche market, as ArenBab wrote about in #hurd recently.
