	Greetings. I'm trying to render some glyphs from ttf font to svg image using 
gtk2hs cairo binding. Since I can find nothing appropriate in gtk2hs API,  I 
decided to draw outlines with bezier curves myself. But how to get them out of 
font? As far as I know, freetype library is capable of extracting outlines, but 
is there any haskell binding for it which supports this functionality?

	Here [1] one such lib was mentioned, but it wasn't availible online that time. 
Have situation changed today?

Thanks in advance
