Terrific! Partial bindings are great. Thanks for releasing it. I haven't
taken the time to look at your code, but...

Can you be more specific about what needs improvement?
I wrote a partial Haskell binding for Net-SNMP recently, and I got along
pretty well using the API docs at
http://www.haskell.org/ghc/docs/latest/html/libraries/index.html, and an
example in RWH using hsc2hs.
What did you see that was contradictory?
