That's not a global change, but leksah specific parameter that can't be
set in another way, as far as I know. The problem is, that gtk2hs
toolkit doesn't bind the function to read a string and parses it as
configuration data. If you can help me with this make a gtk2hs patch. I
can look up the name of the function for you.

That seems like a good idea. It shouldn't be too difficult.

For me it always worked well with qualified imports. I have to test it,
but since I start traveling tomorrow and have not prepared I have no
time now. You can check if the metadata needed is really their and you
can start leksah from a console and check for any errors from the

Ok, you can do it. Or hire 5 programmers.

Yes it is indeed a lot of work, and it is nice you say this.
