[Haskell-cafe] GLFW/GLFW-b ambiguity

The GLFW and GLFW-b package on hackage are _both_ wrappers around the C-library GLFW.
So, GLFW-b "extends" the GLFW C-library, _not_ the GLFW haskell package.

Hope everything is clear now.

GLFW-b main module is named the same as GLFW (import Graphics.UI.GLFW), making it necessary to hide one of the libraries via ghc-pkg hide, or to use a language extension in order to solve ambiguity.  I am tempted to consider it a bug, unless somebody knows a good reason for it to be called a feature.
