[MirageOS-devel] Mirage-WWW porting status

I've been making good progress on porting Mirage/WWW to the 1.0 libraries. The 
main website now compiles with 1.0 and crunch, with this (now-merged) pull 

It was a fairly brute-force merge, but makes it much easier to break up the old 
website into a cleaner one based on the Cowabloga library.

I then took a shot at recompiling the website to use a dynamic FAT block device 
instead of the static crunch filesystem.  This required a few minor changes to 

- Add a KV_RO compatible mode to FAT which simplifies its normally read/write 
FS interface: https://github.com/mirage/mirage/pull/160
- Modify the Mirage command line to have a FAT_KV_RO option: 
- Parameterise the Mirage-WWW config.ml to use either crunch or static; 

This plumbing was all pretty straightforward, but triggers a bug somewhere in 
the FAT directory traversal, so the resulting website doesn't actually read the 
files in FAT mode yet.

Once that's tracked down (hello Dave!), I can add a Unix_KV_RO module too, and 
we'll have a pass-through to the filesystem to make it easier to develop code 
without recompiling all the time.

TL;DR: blog post very soon, forgive the slight delay :-)
