Request for input on #7253: Top-level bindings in GHCI

I'm thinking of working on this ticket (
https://ghc.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/7253), so, as per mpickering's
I'm emailing the list to solicit input.
My first instinct was to treat declarations like "a = 1" in GHCI as
equivalent to "let a = 1"; this would be a straightforward matter of
parsing. On the other hand, as thoughtpolice comments, let-bound variables
are treated subtly differently than top-level bindings, so the proper
solution may be more involved.
