Create a GNU/HURD port like Debian has done

Just read about this on the Ubuntu Forums. It's a terrible idea, especially if it would detract developer resources away from developing and improving Ubuntu as it is now (i.e with a Linux kernel)

Scottuss, I disagree. Having a compatible-but-different kernel behind the scenes could promote innovation (much like eglibc vs glibc does at the libc level and pulse vs alsa vs etc does at the sound level).

"crosshurd" is a package (dapper through maverick) that lets you create a separate gnu/hurd ubuntu partition using apt. I haven't tried it yet, but I plan to.

If there is a package to do this, then surely this bug can be closed? There is a way to use a GNU/Hurd system easily, so we don't need a bug report open for it.
