Some people that have no clue about free software, believe that adding a 'Copyright' symbol on the code will somehow make it unfree.
That is, these people really believe that free software is software in the public domain. Oh, the horror!
Let's try again: free software deeply needs copyright in order to work. Without copyright, the software would be public domain and people could easily take and not release any advancements to the code. Mir is licensed under GPLv3 which is good.
I might try to give a hand, but I know mostly C (not C++) and have no experience on this kind of project. Sounds like fun, though.

If we are going to do this, I think the way to go is to provide build switches for them. One must be able to build such features, if compatibility is expected. But if there is a good reason not to (e.g., adware enabling APIs), there should be a way to disable them (and IMO, disabled by default).
