Actually, I'm writing a small program using Gtk2Hs, there has some labels, menu items, I want them show in different languages, just like gettext works. If "IsString" can work, can you give me a small example for it? Thanks!

Using overloaded string literals for translated strings - an interesting
idea worth exploring.  For example, would there be a particular type
TranslatedString, or should any "" literal be subject to be translated?
