out of curiosity, is there a rationale for naming (e.g. mirage-http vs simply

we're still aiming to support 3.12.1 (and 4.00.1) then?

i will have a PR for mirage-skeleton ready soon (maybe this evening). have been 
working through trying to organise & update the samples as well as incorporate 
the extra ones from fosdem. i'll see if i can get balraj's examples in there

i wondered about this putting the demo together. my own feeling is that they 
should be separate though there's lots of overlap for now. lib_test == unit 
tests which are definitely not the same thing as skeleton, which i think of as 
idiomatic/best-practice samples as a starting point for other development. i'd 
expect that lib_test should get more detailed and more complex test and 
regression cases that grow as time passes. skeleton probably stays relatively 
small and gets the cruft trimmed out over time.
