A revised version of the FFI Addendum including all issues
of the last discussion is now available from
(and from haskell.org's CVS repository).
As far as I am concerned, the document is now ready for a
Request for Comments by the Haskell community at large.
Attached is a short list of points concerning recent changes
that you may want to check.
New stuff to check
* Section 5.10: Extended handling of IOError (slight variant
of SimonM's proposal)
* Section 6: hs_init() & friends
* Interaction of FFI Addendum with Libraries Addendum: I
propose to *not* mention anything about the new libraries
hierarchy now. The Libraries Addendum will have to give a
mapping of old to new names for all standard modules
anyway. I'd rather have the names for the FFI modules
in the Libraries Addendum.
