Re: urls.txt-- format change?

I've done a really quick re-jig of the repositories, so you can try:

$ opam init http://mirage.github.com/opam-0.4
$ opam remote -add local http://mirage.github.com/opam-0.4-dev
$ opem install lwt # due to a bug in the package files
$ opam install mirage

I'm still finishing up the dev conversion (a bit later today) and will get 
mirage-www building with it (wont take too long).  It's probably easier to 
clone the repos yourself (mirage/opam-repository and mirage/opam-repo-dev) and 
run "opam-mk-repo" yourself for now.
