Here is an unfortunate phenomenon with mlbs:

The mlton-stubs.cm file is supposed to prepend onto the program a stub for
the MLton structure.  Unfortunately, the way we interpret a .mlb in a
clean basis, means that this stub isn't visible from other .mlbs.  There
are certainly ways around it, but it is a little cumbersome.
