[Haskell-cafe] Status of Haskell + Mac + GUIs & graphics

Is there a library that satisfies 2 of your 3 points?
* Works with ghci
* Supports OpenGL.
I've struggled to get:
* A window with opengl
* Running interactively from ghci
* Working cross platform
Anyone know of a solution for that?
If there's a library that handles that, then there's at least a sensible base to build a pure functional GUI system on.

I still haven't found any way to do GUIs or interactive graphics in Haskell on a Mac that isn't plagued one or more of the following serious problems:
* Incompatible with ghci, e.g., fails to make a window frame or kills the process the second time one opens a top-level window,
* Goes through the X server, and so doesn't look or act like a Mac app,
* Doesn't support OpenGL.
A year or two ago, I put my Haskell GUI & graphics work on hold while waiting & hoping for a functioning pathway to open. So far I haven't heard of one.
If anyone has found a solution, I'd love to hear!
