For some deep psychological reason I presumed that the info after
"Changes since the last public release" were the old stuff and the new
stuff was at the head of the documentation.

Sorry for the noise.  I finally found documentation for that structure
at http://www.standardml.org/Basis/.  It looks like there is a book
about the SML basis library.

Sorry about the noise.  It like now that I've figure out how to read
the documentation that I'll be able to get by.
