Sure, that's a given, but are you thinking of a thin obj-c skin for the GUI
code calling haskell to do the heavy lifting, or of having haskell know the
intimate details of the cocoa apis and managing window composition etc
merits to both, i guess. in my highly uneducated opinion, i think HOC might
have tried to do too much - it had a lot of interesting stuff in there but
was usually a bear to get working.
A UNIX signature isn't a return address, it's the ASCII equivalent of a
black velvet clown painting. It's a rectangle of carets surrounding a
quote from a literary giant of weeniedom like Heinlein or Dr. Who.
