[Haskell-cafe] Haskell GUI on top of Xlib?

Do there exist Haskell graphics/UI toolkits implemented on top of the
X11 library (Xlib) without any intermediate C/C++ libraries (i. e. not
WxHaskell for example)?
I have a very low level client-side interface to the X11 protocol
implemented in pure Haskell (layout of protocol packets obtained from
Xlib header files preprocessed by HSFFIG). As of now, I can open a
display, build request packets manually and parse server responses (some
of, but this is just a matter of writing more parsers), so this is more
like a toolset for X11 protocol packets manipulations. I do not intend
to implement a full analog of Xlib in Haskell. Instead, it might be
interesting to create a "fully functional" GUI toolkit based on some
already existing high-level interface.
Any ideas will be appreciated.
