Its great to hear how close we are on so many fronts!
I wasn't opposing the Haskell GUI effort generically at all.
I was opposing constraining it to H98 as it exists today rather than
what we can reasonably expect it to be fairly shortly.

To restate: If the GUI effort can get done either more quickly, more
elegantly, or with a nicer API, using some features that we all expect
Haskell to have very shortly (as addenda), it should use them.
(Especially if the timeline for completion of the GUI basically matches
the timeline for these features to be added to Haskell.)
