* I modified tcp_ip_stack to reflect that lwip should replace pfinet.
* I modified open_issues/device_drivers_and_io_systems to include rump kernel. * I created a rump kernel wiki page, and I linked to it from the project_ideas/tcp_ip_stack webpage. * I added an obsolete logo to the DDE page, to pointe people to the Rump kernel page.

+ The rump kernels provide existing real world drivers from netbsd. Since DDE no longer seems like a promising approach to get drivers for the Hurd, it appears that rump kernels are the best alternative. It already does the hard work of providing an environment where the foreign drivers can run, and offers the additional benefit of being externally maintained. Rump also offers the necessary facilities for running all drivers in separate userspace processes, which is more desirable than drivers running in the microkernel.
