By "they", I mean the Haskell routines under discussion.
Your examples of dlsym() and readline are sufficiently convincing
that I agree that these conversion functions should be left in.
But they should be documented properly.
(The fact that Perl and other software has undocumented
non-portabilities doesn't imply that we should be lax in
documenting our own stuff!)
