I didn't mean that a Haskell binding to wxWindows should be made. I meant
that the strategy of wxWindows should be used also for a Haskell GUI library.
This strategy is to define a common GUI interface and provide implementations
for different platforms based on different libraries like GTK+ (for GNOME),
Qt (for KDE), Win32.
By the way a Haskell binding to wxWindows would maybe cause performance
problems just because wxWindows isn't "native" but itself uses other GUI
