 Hurd isn't a 'Mach microkernel'. Hurd runs on top of Mach 3 or newer
microkernels, I believe, acting as the server. Cr, er, MachTen is also
based on Mach 2.5 and I doubt Tenon would give out the source for it..
just getting Hurd to work with 2.5 (which is a macrokernel) would be a 
major task, too, and not worthwhile just to get it working with MachTen.
 I remember rumors of someone working on a free new Mach port for Mac,
but that was a long time ago.
 'Unix emulator' ?
