Thanks for the info!

I looked at the documentation for GtkGLExt (I think you were referring 
to this), and compared to FieldTrip, I think it's a lot harder to write.
 As diving into either of these systems would require serious work, I'm 
not totally sure of this, but it seems that FieldTrip is more high-level
 with its wrappers and with GtkGLExts you still have to deal with lots 
of small details. Is it possible that that FieldTrip could export a data structure (Geometry3 ?) that can be read by GtkGLExts? That would solve the problem of interfacing between Gtk2hs and FieldTrip.
