Given that the package coverage of the Hurd continuously increased and
that it just released 0.6 of its core components[1] along with releasing
Debian GNU/Hurd[2], this strikes me as an odd time to throw the Hurd off

The Hurd isn’t an old architecture which is slowly fading away but
rather slowly but steadily progressing and getting more stable.

The qemu live image works right away, including the translator tests
which show the unique capabilities of the Hurd.
