I realize I hadn’t responded to Manolis.  Another +1 from me!

Some random comments:

I think an ideal situation would be if libc provides ‘mount’ and
‘umount’, with MS_BIND implemented in terms of firmlinks.

I remember Roland was not thrilled with the idea of adding ‘mount’ and
‘umount’, but it would clearly help porting.  I don’t know if this task
should be part of the GSoC project though, and you may need guidance
from the Hurd folks.  What do people think?

Possibly, depending on whether libc provides ‘mount’ and ‘umount’, which
would make things simpler.
