I have updated the Gtk implementation of SOE (module Graphics.SOE.Gtk)
to be compatible with the new SOE interface. I've also fixed a few bugs,
in particular a bug in rendering polygon regions.

It is available from hackage:

or via darcs:

(It's also included in the Gtk2Hs darcs repo)

I've tested it on Linux with the SOE demos, but it should also work fine
on Windows or Mac OS X. It does require Gtk2Hs of course.

User-visible differences in this Gtk version:
      * Smoother anti-aliased graphics
      * Lower CPU usage for animations (ie not 100% all the time), which
        gives smoother animation.

If anyone finds any problems, especially any API incompatibilities or
rendering bugs then please do report them.
