Ok, so the subhurd question (different from collectives).

It seems clear to me that each subhurd should have a separate IP
address, and that they should use net filters so that they keep out of
each other's way.  They should ignore incoming IP or ARP packets not
concerned with their own IP address.  This is almost adequate.  It
doesn't deal with packets from one subhurd to another on the same
machine.  I think the best thing to deal with that is to have the
kernel device automatically loop back such packets.
