Hi all,

Just a couple of minor follow-ups on the issue of getting wxHaskell to work on 
MacOS X Lion

1. I noticed this piece of text from the wxWidgets wiki [wxWidgets]:

If you want 64-bit wxWidgets on OS X you'll need 2.9+ and configure 
-with-osx_cocoa - see below; but remember that 2.9 is not an official, stable 
release and wxOSX/Cocoa is not yet complete.

This means that Lion users (and Snow Leopard with 64 bit GHC) will *have* to 
use the Cocoa build after all, no choice about it.  I'd been using it pretty 
much for the heck of it, but it turns out to have been a fortunate choice.

2. Doaitse, I'm sorry, it seems your cry for help last October happened before 
people started trying to use wxHaskell on Lion.  Did you see this recent thread 
with hopefully more of a guide?

3. Otherwise, have not yet had a chance to poke around and see if there is a 
way to make things work with just one of Jeremy's or Dave's branches.  So will 
be using the patch bundle I mentioned in this email thread until then.
