Sounds good.  Why don't you go ahead and change the licensing in the
current repo; it might be a while before we make this switch.  Also,
regarding the API, unless you're going to GAC the Mirage.dll you don't
need to worry about too much about API stability.  We'll include the
library at build time like we do ipod-sharp.
