Hi folks - I've been thinking about changing the way we run interpreted 
code so that it would be run in a separate process.  It turns out this 
has quite a few benefits, and would let us kill some of the really 
awkward hacks we have in GHC to work around problems that arise because 
we're running interpreted code and the compiler on the same runtime.

I summarised the idea here:

I'd be interested to hear if anyone has any thoughts around this, 
particularly if doing this would make your life difficult in some way. 
Are people relying on dynCompileExpr for anything?
