Got my through-hole PCB from CrossRoads today and got it all put together and soldered up. Works like a champ (except Mouser sent me the wrong size DC power jack, but I made do). Thanks for your work laying out, producing, and distributing the board, CrossRoads! Went together pretty easily. The main difficulty I had was, the silkscreen doesn't make it very clear which way the LEDs go. L and PWR are pretty obvious since you can see that one side ties into the ground plane, but for TX and RX I had to dig back through the thread for the schematic to see which side the +5V would be coming from. Also, my surface-mount soldering looks like crap (especially that poor PTC fuse. Ugliest solder job I've done in a while), but that's on me, and anyway it gets the job done .
I've been programming it with ICSP, using my Pololu USB AVR programmer, so I can't speak to how it works over FTDI or that Mikroelektronika board (I put the FTDI header on, but didn't buy a Mikro to put on). I still haven't got the Arduino software to be able to burn to it directly (keep getting data mismatch errors when avrdude tries to verify the burn), but after it fails, I can find the .hex file it leaves in the temp directory and burn that using AVR Studio 5. I'll see about getting a picture up tomorrow. For now, it's bedtime.
