Sure, just let me know :)

If this is to be done, I think it's better that the person writing
the Haskell code do not write runGUI, so the implementation
details wouln't discourage ideas that make life easier for users.

I do remember looking at TVs and also Fudgets as sugested by

But there's a unfilled hole for a library that's conceptually
simple. I believe that with the library I described users
(begginers in Haskell?) could even use QuickCheck and HUnit with
their GUI code.
