A complete rewrite is not required, most servers will work with small 
modifications on l4-Hurd. The biggest problem is that currently is in GNUMach 
(drivers, mm, RPC, etc.) should be rewritten for the Hurd.

There are also some design issues for servers like auth, but I don't know but 
about this.
