[Haskell-cafe] getPtrSize works, but is annoying

Ugh, I figured out how to write code to do what I wanted, but it seems like an ugly solution:

	getPtrSize :: Ptr a -> Int
	getPtrSize = getFrom dummy
		getFrom :: a -> Ptr a -> Int
		getFrom dummy _ = sizeOf dummy

Any thoughts on a less ugly solution, or is this really the best that I can do?
