Probably; if you disable ghc's code generator (set hscTarget to HscNothing,
ghcLink to NoLink) ghc will still do the dependency analysis, still process
modules in the right order, and a source plugin still gets called on every
module that gets typechecked correctly -- so you could potentially generate
code at that point?
