And they have the interesting property of being a functional approach to GUI 
programming (similar to FranTk).  Most of the other Haskell GUI toolkits are 
imperative in nature.

And now my shameless plug:  If you can get Gtk2Hs installed and working, you 
could try Grapefruit which is also a functional library.  In addition to 
GUIs, it also supports animated graphics.  At the moment, it’s main downside 
is that it supports only a small set of widgets (buttons, labels, edit fields 
and boxes).  See <http://haskell.org/haskellwiki/Grapefruit>.

Best wishes,
