Just don't hold your breath ;)

My project is more to develop an app, but I'm experimenting with using
reactive and gtk together. Hopefully something like reactive-gtk could come
out of it, but that isn't what I'm aiming for atm. If anything useful does
turn up, I will package it though.

In particular, I'm not sure what the best way to represent GUIs in a
reactive program is. Currently I'm just using an approach similar to the
above, where any GTK event is 'wrapped' using makeEvent to create a reactive
Event. I hope to get a better idea of what the best way is as I proceed and
refactor as I go.
