Where to start.. What exactly do you want to know? What is unclear for you? Be as specific as possible, it makes us a lot easier to give you a good answer.

That's a good start.
You should also do the
'Hurd Hacking Guide' by Wolfgang Jaehrling

Also have a look at what smbtree from the samba distribution does [mind the newline]:

Last time I had a look at Samba 3.0 it seemed to have everything you need to connect it with the translators framwork. At a quick shot it didn't compile through the debian buidl system due to unresolvable dependencies. I think this can be worked arround. Of course it would be nice just to use the vanilla library for the translator. This would proof the translator concept.
