That sounds like a contradiction  to me: "typical Windows user"
and "Uses MLton".. :)

A typical Windows developer will be using MSVC++ anyhow.
And they will be expecting a *binary* package, not source.

Try www.advancedinstaller.com, which I use for Felix,
it can make an MSI package in seconds and is 
completely free.

MSVC++ is also available free (though it is a bit
hard to find).
