A definite yes to binary and getopt; but gtk2hs? I don't trust its longevity or maintenance, and as other people have pointed out, it will make the platform harder to support. As well, we risk holding back the platform - hasn't gtk2hs lagged GHC releases in the past? (I seem to remember some of the lags being quite lengthy.)

Absolutely. I thought we had already done this - didn't TH's unnecessary use of packedstring get removed a while ago?
