Is it really that much more work then what is required keep Debian
packages portable to both the Hurd and Freebsd kernels ? There already
is a free implementation of a Win32 kernel at ReactOS
( http://www.reactos.org/xhtml/en/index.html ) so it's not a non-free
kernel anymore (although granted it is not a *NIX style kernel)
