Now this is kind of impressing what these guys are doing. Not quite sure yet "why" they are doing it ;) . As I understand having a choice between kernels and solid API on top of it would allow developers to:

1. write applications that will run ok on all these kernels
2. choose kernel that suits best for given hardware platform/task
3. provide nice abstraction layer for hardware etc.

Wasn't POSIX all about that? ;)
