GHC API question: resolving dependencies for modules

Thanks a lot for your suggestion! I’ve looked into GHC source plugins.
And, specifically, into your `hashtag-coerce` example:
* https://github.com/mpickering/hashtag-coerce <https://github.com/mpickering/hashtag-coerce>
As far as I can see, this allows only to analyse source code (to produce warnings or errors).
While my actual goal is actually to refactor code automatically. And I would
like to avoid full compilation process to make it work faster.
