I combined all the gzip'd mboxes available from the pipermail web page.
Then I fixed the mailbox headers on the messages by hand/script.

How can I download this mbox you mention?
Also, is there one for mlton-user?

Actually, to make this archive more complete, perhaps I should include some
more/all SML mailing lists so that a search touches on everything SML. That
might be convenient for searching and might also help in terms of inter-
project communication within the SML community. 

What other lists would you recommend? Just give me a URL for subscription
and the current mbox for any lists you think would be good to pull in.

Ok. I just thought MLton must be older. =)
