Thanks for doing this.

A small typo on this line

I think there would be a lot of value in doing another blogpost 
to cover some more advanced topics. For instance, mir supports 
three different SliceKinds and the documentation explaining the 
difference has never been very clear. I don't really feel like 
I've ever had a clear understanding of the low-level differences 
between them. The pack/ipack/unpack functions are also pretty 
hard to understand from the documentation.
