There are some discussions going on in this
GitHub issue:


with proposals for extensive breaking changes
to the Win32 library. Well over 100 functions would
be involved. These changes would finally fix many
long outstanding defects in the API, some of which
make it difficult to use important Win32 functions
in the way originally intended. It is estimated that
about 70 packages on Hackage depend on Win32
and could potentially be affected.

If you might be affected, have an opinion, or just
are interested, please drop by the GitHub issue.
There is also a thread on the libraries mailing list.
