That seems promising. If you're really trying to get wxhaskell into
Haskell Platform, it must be more mature than I initially thought.

wxHaskell itself seems to be more functional than the GTK library I'm
used to, which is enough motivation to try and learn it. Add to it the
reactive-bananas library, and this might become something great. I
initially had the idea that reactive-bananas was a little more than just
a proof of concept, but seems like I was mistaken about that too :).
Keep up the good work.
