[MLton] Bootstrap with bytecode

Just curious, but are their plans to bootstrap with the bytecode version of 
the compiler? I'm assuming the bytecode interpreter is easier to port than a 
  big C file produced by MLton.

It would be really nice, if I can just checkout MLton sources from CVS and 
compile with just a C compiler installed on any platform I can get the 
runtime to compile on. I know Ocaml bootstraps this way.
