Here is a tiny idea for a QT based GUI library

In the past months I've seen a lot of interest in designing a standard GUI
library for Haskell.
I've just realized that a feature of QT 3.0[!] library, which is a well
versed GUI library used in KDE, can make writing a GUI library quite easy.
There is a class called QWidgetFactory[*] in QT 3.0 that enables application
programmers to dynamically generate a GUI from a .ui file which is an XML
file that describes it.
If a functional combinator library would be able to generate the XML file in
question then a GUI could be created quite easily.
You also need to access objects in the created widget and implement slots for
it, which I think should be possible using the C bindings. There are new C
bindings for KDE and there ought to be some for QT as well.
Are there any interested implementors? :)
