And your feedback is greatly appreciated since you're working with it :)

agreed.  mirage describe is around now with those two modes, I agree we
should just drop the non-eval part and error to run mirage configure
(and mirage configure without arguments should IMHO default to -t unix
as it is now).

mirage describe without --eval looks to me very similar to mirage help,
