You can use (StateT <your_type> IO) instead of plain IO in the pipe to
pass that data around. There are functions for working with StateT
(and other transformer) pipes in Pipes.Lift module:

Other than that, having to worry about state kept in the C part of a
Haskell program is often a pain in general, unfortunately. Perhaps you
could take some hints from https://hackage.haskell.org/package/GPipe
for example, but I have no idea if that's going to be of any help.

The only change is from Pipes.print to Pipes.drain? This is weird,
maybe you'd have better luck asking on Pipes mailing list:
https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups#!forum/haskell-pipes (
mailto:haskell-pipes at googlegroups.com )
