You should add a new BFLAGS:

BFLAGS = mlton "mlton -flatten {false,true}"

That will pick up the mlton on your path (so adjust as necessary); the
{X,Y,Z} notation will expand out to one benchmark run with
  mlton -flatten false
and one with
  mlton -flatten true

Absolutely post your ideas and changes.  We'd all be really interested in
hearing about them.
