It would still be possible to move libhurduser to Hurd, though? That way you
avoid the issue that if you add an RPC and want to use it in another part of
Hurd, you need to add it, build glibc with the new Hurd installed, and then use
it. The same applies if you want to use it from an independent project, with
libhurduser in Hurd you would only need a new Hurd.
