LIbchannel isn't really necessary for either of these projects. Aside
from the fact that I still don't see any use in a generic libchannel at
all, there is nothing wrong with implementing these things
independently, and later moving them to libchannel if someone really
feels like implementing it. Libchannel is only an optimization.

Answering any attempt of implementing sound or improved networking or
whatever with "write libchannel first" doesn't make any sense.

Sound support doesn't really depend on a new driver framework either. It
requires sound drivers in Mach of course, but that doesn't mean all the
other drivers need to be updated for that.

Another interesting task: Improve subhurds. (Allow running as root, more
debug possibilities, sharing of services etc.)
