I know this isn't the information you were looking for, but you might find
it easier to write a Mathematica parser in ML to exchange symbolic data. If
you output from Mathematica in FullForm then the grammar is trivial (1 page
of ML for the whole lexer+parser). I do this regularly with OCaml, rather
than SML.

May I ask what you're doing with it? Sounds interesting. :-)
