The MLton error format doesn't appear to be friendly to Emacs
next-error parser i.e. I can't step through the errors using C-x `.

The default mode for GNU Ada has the same incompatibility but the
compiler has a --emacs option get it to generate Emacs friendly error
messages.  Is there something equivalent for MLton or some other way
of allowing Emacs to step through the errors?
