I completely agree. Mir is a:
   (1) server library
   (2) client library
so it should have:
   (1) server headers
   (2) client headers
   (3) /maybe/ common headers

The word "toolkit" does not immediately or obviously come in there. 
"toolkit" to the wider English-speaking audience is a vague word that 
could mean many things with regards to software and libraries.

If we're to use the word "toolkit" anywhere, can someone please define 
it for the rest of us?
