*you* can. i cannot. instead, i write a lot of code that implements
features lacking in gtk2hs

generally, i have very opposite positions in Haskell community and
outside it

some peoples say that i shouldn't use haskell because FP doesn't
provide serious advantages over Java. they tend to consider anyone
using Haskell as scientist

other people say that i shouldn't use haskell if my usage doesn't fall
into their idea of how it should be used

but i just work. i deliver program to my users and using haskell for
some its parts decrease time-to-market. if haskell will improve its
'do' syntax, it will reduce my development costs even more. just for
comparison - something like GADT or AT or generics, while cute by
itself, cannot help me at all
