[Haskell-cafe] Design question, HTML for GUIs?

Hi everyone,

as probably most people I find the GUI part of any application to be the 
hardest part.

It just occurred to me that I *could* write my wxHaskell desktop 
application as a web app too.

When the app starts, a haskell web server start listening on localhost 
port 8080 for example and I fire up a browser to page localhost:8080 
without the user actually knowing too much about it.

Is that a totally stupid idea?
Which haskell web servers would make good candidates?
Are there any *continuation* based web server in haskell, something 
similar to Smalltalk's Seaside?
Is Hyena continuation-based?
