[Haskell-cafe] Combining Network Descriptions in Reactive.Banana

I am currently experimenting with Reactive.Banana and I am trying to
write a program that simply displays a String which is supplied by the
user. Thus in Main.hs I'd like to create a Behavior t String from some
arbitrary sources and pass this to a library function performing the
printing. However, I am not able to get the desired behavior of my
program. A sample Main.hs is available as Gist .
The cause of error appears to be that the type t over which
NetworkDescription and Behavior are parameterized are distinct! I
tried several variations of the code in  using
ExistentialQuantification over t and/or giving explicit type
signatures. The error is slightly different in each case, but always
boils down to the same reason.
In case explicit error messages are required I can post them to the list.
Any insight into this would be of great help. And additionally I'd be
interested if this kind of program is possible with Reactive.Banana at
