Nobody's going to reimplement an entire graphics stack in Haskell (or any
other language, except as a tour-de-force with no practical use); they're
going to use existing bindings to a well-tested existing GUI.  Rewriting Wx
or Gtk+ in Haskell, seriously?  Aside from the effort required at the
outset, try keeping up with changes to the thing you're reimplementing.
 Not maintainable and not viable.
