  . Mirserver ABI bumped to 35
  . Mircommon ABI unchanged at 5
  . Mirplatform ABI bumped to 11
  . Mirprotobuf ABI bumped to 3
  . Mirplatformgraphics ABI bumped to 6
  . Mirclientplatform ABI unchanged at 3

    untrusted 3rd parties.
  . More refactorings to support renderers other than GL.
  . Add MirBlob to the client API - a tool for serializing and
