Thanks! I've updated the website.   There's a fairly critical fix in 
mirage-platform trunk that Dave just put in that repairs some of the Xenstore 
refactoring (restoring it back to a singleton handle).

The Xenstore code is almost ready to pull completely out of mirage-platform now 
though, which helps pull yet another major part out into a UNIX compatibility 
layer too.

Before I cut mirage-0.9.6 though, I'm possibly seeing a regression on the Netif 
device: lots of packet loss on the live website.  However, I'm on slow wifi 
from the BA lounge at Heathrow, so if Dave/Vincent could do a bit of testing on 
Netif that'd be most helpful.  I'll delay cutting 0.9.6 until then.

I don't think so... Mirari was always in a bit of flux, but it's probably worth 
writing one now to explain its magic.
