The other issue is SMP support. I don't Minix supports it and as far
as I can tell neither does eCOS.

So once again we hit what I think would be a good reason to adopt a
Inferno style OS. If the majority of the OS is written in Lua and is
cross-platform, then it would be possible to swap out the kernel for
the needs of the user. One could then build a minimal set of
interfaces off of Linux, L4, Minix or eCOS, and be assured that the
remaining code would run almost the same on each. As long as all the
kernels implement the same message passing routines, no code
modification would be needed.
