Awesome work!

For those interested in wxHaskell, I would like to mention that it's now 
possible to program GUIs in a purely functional style, using functional 
reactive programming (FRP). See also


Jeremy, I would love to be able to use wxHaskell from ghci on MacOS X; 
that would speed up my GUI development cycle considerably.

Best regards,
