GHC-API unloading from external interpreter

Dear GHC Developers,

I'm using the GHC API to load Haskell modules and extract their syntax 
tree. I need to generate code where TH is used (by default I do 
in-memory linking). I've run into some trouble with external 
interpreter. When -fexternal-interpreter is NOT set, I use Linker.unload 
to remove bytecode from the global linker before reloading modules. 
However it is not applicable when external interpreter is used and I 
could not find corresponding functionality in the GHCi module (where 
communication with external interpreter is implemented).

I've recently created 2 tickets related to this question:,

Can someone help me with this problem?

Best Regards,
Boldizsár Németh
