ack; it might be useful to write down (or collate) the assumptions we're making 
about package dependencies to check that we're coherent. i'm having problems at 
the moment trying to go from a clean opam install on xen to even being able to 
"mirage configure" my website -- there seem to be some weird package version 
incompatibilities. (eg., if mirage-types.1.0.0 is installed, the configure step 
downgrades to 0.5.0; but if mirage-types is not installed at all, it seems to 
install 1.1.0.)

ack. i need to make sure the PR for my fixes to the generation of 
make-fatN-image.sh has been merged too...
