Not  to  disagree  with Stephen, but since the MLton stack is NOT the machine
one, and because of precise GC, it can be  moved  and  can  grow  and  shrink
(during  GCs).   Hence  it  can  be made very small for threads, allowing the
possibility to have a great many live threads even in a 32-bit address space.
