That's where the term 'hybrid' comes in. Basically, DFly is monolithic
due to it's ancestry, with microkernel features added (the message
passing structure et al). The theory is, the current kernel could be
split up into independent userspace servers pretty easily because the
way they communicate is transparent: the message passing interface.
