Covering reactive programming would indeed be interesting.

I want to add that there is no single way for doing reactive programming in 
Haskell.  There is Conal’s stuff, there is Yampa and there is “my” stuff 
(Grapefruit [1]) whereby the pros and cons of these approaches differ.  (And 
there is plenty of other stuff which doesn’t seem to be actively developed, 
like, for example, FranTk.)

Also note that reactive programming in Haskell is not as mature as, for 
instance, GUI programming with Gtk2Hs.  So it might not be wise to add a 
chapter on it now. Maybe in the second version of the book. :-) 

Best wishes,
