This question is best asked on the libraries at haskell.org list, so I'll
forward it there. Failing that, best to contact the maintainer of the
xlib package.

Subject: [Haskell] Haskell Xlib bindings

Hello everyone,

This question probably belongs in GUI, but I tried posting there a week
ago and have yet to get a response.

My question is this:  Why do the Haskell Xlib bindings have no way to
extract the property event from an event pointer?

For example, the following functions are available:

get_KeyEvent, get_ButtonEvent, get_MotionEvent, etc.

but there's no get_PropertyEvent.

Why was this left out?  It seems pretty critical to the functionality
of an Xlib program to someone who's been programming in C with Xlib for
quite some time.
