Just to set the record straight: I am the primary author of the
diagrams package (http://hackage.haskell.org/package/diagrams), which
is unrelated to the link above.  What they have done is very cool but
seems mostly pedagogical in nature; the diagrams package attempts to
go much, much further as a real-world tool for constructing vector
graphics. (Look for a new release soon! =)

Luite Stegeman (luite on #haskell) has been working on something
called "Wolfgang Lambda", similar in spirit to Mathematica's user
interface, but it is also unrelated to the above link.  It's not
released yet (not sure what the planned timeline is).
