If I were to write one right now (and I might actually need in a
few days), I'd use Gtk2Hs.

 - Does not fit Haskell's style.
 - Very imperative, everything in IO.

 - Terrific binding: (almost) complete, working, tested.
 - Multi-platform (as far as Gtk itself is).
 - If you need, reading Gtk's C docs is straightforward.
 - Seamless integration with Cairo (yay!).
 - ... (probably more)

I already used Gtk on other languages before Haskell, though, so
I'm somewhat biased.
