Hmm... I really like this idea....

Instead of trying to build the whole thing... maybe just build a
lispOS "personality" for the Hurd...

That is very convenient, since (as you say) you always have the
standard Hurd environment (whatever that will be) to fall back on.

But I haven't look at any of the Hurd snapshots yet, so I don't know
the feasibility of this.

It's something to think about, anyway...
