D'oh.  That's evil.

Mh.  I think you can also do several nodes in trivfs, so using netfs
is not mandatory to get the same effect.  However, in either case the
console client would need to provide an intermediate layer and
interfaces to plugins.  Seems to make sense to me to do it that way.

This should be on bug-hurd, as it is a development issue.
