Which do you think will be more useful to us right now:

Implementation of the remaining system calls + #e/#c devices (this
will definitely get rc working)
- or -
Implementation of Plan 9 style per-process namespaces and union mounts
(long term glendix goal)

Feedback is appreciated :-)

My vote goes here. We can iron out the details later, but for now
making things work would be nice

I agree with Mauro here. Making things work for now would be a better idea. We can extend these to implement per-process namespaces later. As it will also take a lot of time and we need to get many things working before we can actually start with this (and for it's testing etc.).
