So you basically want a server -- it's not a translator -- receiving
notifies of the /packages directory changes and reacting to dir_notify
by changing the PATH environment variable of ALL processes. I am not
an Hurd expert. How do you exactly plan to do it?

For Hurd hackers out there? How this could be done?

And btw, how would you get this thing booting? (please go in _detail_ here).


It was a type of people I did not know, I found them very strange and
they did not inspire confidence at all. Later I learned that I had been
introduced to electronic engineers.
