[MLton] flattening of arrays and vectors

With regards to distributing the basis library sources and ways to make the
saved world after changing it, I agree that that is very important.
As to file identity, I would think that the way to go is to use a timestamp
and re-scan the file if it is newer. My notion is that you scan the source
names, recording their current identity (device/inode) and also looking at
the timestamp. If they are newer than the saved world memory of the time
then you issue a warning and scan the sources.
Mind you, I have no idea how hard that would be to do in the current world,
but at least conceptually it seems pretty straight forward.
