I partially did. I contacted the OpenBSD development team, but it seems
that they will be unable to do anything unless we can give them a C
file simulating what MLton does and show that this is different
behaviour from something else (NetBSD, Linux, etc). I had planned to
do something about it, when courses in General Topology, Galois Theory,
and Complex Functional theory came up. So as it stands I have not dug
any further into it. 

I am not sure when I will get the time to write up that C code though.
