My assumption is that they are talking about the Hurd itself which is merely
a set of servers running on top of some kernel.  Currently that is Mach,
they are working on L4.  Because the interprocess communications is done
through ports the underlying micro-kernel shouldn't matter (at least that's
the theory I suppose).
