Just adding the .ghci file is a start. However, ideally it would be
something that will be more resistant to bitrotting that we might even
be able to test. For instance, a shell script or build system rule that
can generate the .ghci file from GHC's cabal file and launch ghc

We could then test this during CI as I think there is enough interest in
this workflow that we should really try to support it.
