You are glad that FRP is *not* alive? Okay, this was a typo, wasn’t it? ;-)

Well, I have no plans myself to create a wxHaskell UI backend, basically for 
one reason: wxWidgets tries to implement the same API using different native 
UI libs for getting native look and feel. However, when I last checked, it 
didn’t seem to do this very well. So I decided to implement the multi-toolkit 
feature directly in Grapefruit.

If you have problems with Gtk2Hs on Windows, it might be better to write a 
Win32-based backend for Grapefruit instead of a wxWidgets-based one. What do 
you think about that?

Best wishes,
