I could ask the question: "Which MLton IL? (There are many.)" But, the
answer for all of them is: "No, we don't have parsers for any of the ILs."
For debugging the compiler, we've always found that starting from the
SML source file was sufficient.
If someone wanted to use MLton as a backend for a different front-end
language, then targeting one of the ILs would be appropriate. I don't
think it would be terribly hard to write a parser for the SSA IL (or any
of the other ones). But, we haven't found it necessary.
