Hi Stephen (and others),

Thanks for adding me to the MLton mailing lists. In general, my
interest is to follow the many fine discussions and the development of
MLton. Many of the discussions could also be fruitful for the ML Kit
implementation; in particular, I ran into your discussion from July
2003 on replacing CM with something more similar to the PM system used
in the ML Kit. I'm currently looking at improving the recompilation
system in the ML Kit by serializing import and export environments to
disk, which in principle could influence our PM system. One problem is
that the improvement requires a dependency analysis, which, as you
know, is difficult for Standard ML (because of toplevel value
constructors and infix declarations).

So what happened to the ML Basis files - it seemed like a good idea?

Best Regards,
