Hi Heath.  Matthew forwarded your mail to the MLton developer list,
which is the best place to send MLton-related questions and to catch
the eyes of all the MLton developers.  I'll add my 2 cents to his

MLton/CML doesn't use the underlying OS threads -- it uses its own
threads.  So, we hope that CML on OpenBSD is no different than CML on
other platforms.  MLton/CML does rely on the OS's signal handlers in
order to implement preemption.

There is almost no documentation of the MLton runtime system.  If you
ask questions, we'll write answers and start adding documentation to
the wiki.
