Yes, there is: http://mlton.org/cgi-bin/viewsvn.cgi/mltonlib/trunk/com/ssh/unit-test/unstable/

I will probably enhance the library with GAST
(http://www.cs.ru.nl/~pieter/gentest/gentest.html) style automatic
(exhaustive/systematic enumeration) testing in the near future.  I
already wrote an experimental enum generic for that purpose, but there
are some details there that need to change.
