Hi Stephen. 

| My question was not clear enough.  By "people" I meant 
| typical windows users that want to run MLton on their Windows 
| machine and use it to generate executables that run on 
| Windows.

I often use compilers from the Windows command prompt rather than MSYS.

I support the idea of an mlton executable - I have never understood why
launching a compiler should require two steps instead of one.

If you choose to use a driver, it might as well be a compiled SML
program rather than a platform specific script.
