I tried the CURL bindings on Linux some time ago and I personally
found the thing pretty much un-usable. The API was incomplete, 
inconsistent and way too close to the C API.

However, I have had much better luck with Michael Snoyman's http-conduit
package, which being pure Haskell (ie no C) should be much easier to 
install on windows.
