Nice I have also worked on this topics, even with Haskell. However, at
that time I used plain lists.

Btw. Data.StorableVector can also be used for this interfacing, and I
would be very interested in an interface to FFTW. Actually, I have
already used FFTW on StorableVector


There is also Data.StorableVector.Lazy which is nice for processing
stream data.
