MigMit$ /usr/local/wxhaskell/bin/macosx-app --help
   macosx-app [options] <program (a.out)>

options: [defaults in brackets]
   --help | -?         show this information
   --verbose | -v      be verbose

Seems like it just works. Of course, I agree that it's a bit hard to  
find, but it's here without installing any third-party scripts.

Seems like the same applies to macosx-app.

So... Does it mean that you LIKE programming in XCode, even when using  
Haskell? Wow.
