Hi Fernand,

Congratulations! I once tried to compile HDirect with GHC 6.6.1 but finally
stopped trying after having made a bunch of unsuccessful modifications. It's
just too bad this library is no more maintained. Having a clean and
maintained COM interface would be really valuable for Haskell.

I would be interested in getting the patches for compiling HDirect with GHC
