 What if the 1st hurd that was booted on a machine crashes?  Should all the
sub-hurds (or n-hurds, short for neighbourhurd) know they are a sub-hurd so
they can take over the NAT?  I like the idea of booting two hurds on the same
machine and each of them having every thing of there own except the cpu(s).

 My only problem with this so far is that I couldn't talk, over ethernet, from
one hurd to another hurd on the same machine.
