Log Message:
Update to Poly/ML Version 5.3

Major New Features

  - Addition of IDE interface support.
  - Changes to pretty-printing and equality. These are now inherited
    across module boundaries. Addition of PolyML.addPrettyPrinter
    to install a new-style pretty printer.
  - Reworked implementation of signatures reducing the memory
    requirements when a named signature is used in multiple places.
  - Improvements to printing of types and error messages.

Minor Additions and Changes

  - Support for out-of-tree builds
  - Added finalisation for foreign-function interface (CInterface)
  - Removed remaining support for ML90
  - Added PolyML.sourceLocation pseudo-function that returns the current
    source location, PolyML.raiseWithLocation that raises an exception
    with an explicit location and PolyML.exceptionLocation that returns
    the location where an exception was raised.
  - Added PolyML.Compiler.reportUnreferencedIds switch to enable reporting
    of unreferenced identifiers.
  - Added breakEx and clearEx to debugger functions.
    These enter the debugger when the code raises a given exception.
  - Improvement to resonsiveness to pipes especially in Windows.
  - Added X86-64 version of Word32 structure. 64-bit machines
    do not require 32-bit values to be "boxed".

Bug Fixes

  - Now builds on Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard)
  - Fix multi-threading on Sparc but now only supports v9 processors.
  - Fix timing-related crash when Poly/ML exits
  - Fix string argument to OS.SysErr exception
  - Fix to OS.FileSys.mkDir in Windows
  - Fix to pow(~1, n) where n is even
  - Various fixes to conform more closely to the standard.
