This sounds entertaining, but according to the HaskellWiki entry for
GuiTV (see http://haskell.org/haskellwiki/GuiTV), "wxHaskell ... can
be difficult to install."
Has this difficulty been resolved? I am somewhat hesitant to install
wxHaskell because of this reported difficulty. Has anybody had any
recent difficulties in installing this package combination on Windows
XP Professional, Service Pack 2?
