and I would like to know if the code is accessible/readable/idiomatic, 
if the overall organization seems reasonable as well or if you might 
have any other suggestion about what I could improve. (ie: I haven't

The domain model

The UI is using wx widgets (wxHaskell). Each wx-frame gets a copy of 
Chan FicsMessage and updates the UI when new Messages are available, ie
