It also uses translators to add easy access to those interfaces through

Personally, I don't care where /proc comes from, or if it's Hurd or not.
We all use it. A lot of programs use it. It makes sense to rely on it.
The problem is actually traditional /proc versus Linux /proc filled with
additional (sometimes unrelated) information. The Hurd shouldn't expect
those, but Debian does.

If I'm right, procfs is outside the main Hurd repository because it's
not the original procfs server. We could probably merge it in one day
