I think, I'll look at you example ML code and think about it some more.
Anyway, I'm still a little fuzzy on what the exact problem specification is.
I mean there are issues related to correctness, efficiency of 
representations, efficiency of coercion, and code blow up because of MLTon's 
compilation approach.

I think, I'm getting a little lost. It would be nice to come up with a clean 
problem spec. Maybe, then it'll be easier to see the design space and come 
up with the obviously best way to go.
