COM interop library and IDL compiler for Haskell

Quite often someone from the mailing lists is asking how to bind Haskell to COM. HaskellDirect? is a tool that allows direct translation from IDL to Haskell. The problem is that currently it is seriously ill. The generated code is often full of both runtime and compile errors. The generated code is using a COM interop library which was developed before the current FFI addendum and doesn't conform to it very well. I have developed an initial replacement for the library that I intend to use in Visual Haskell. The aim of this project would be to implement an IDL to Haskell translator for it.
