Compiling binaries of bytecode: ever been considered?

Hi all,

I was just wondering: has a compiler output mode ever been considered
that would dump bytecode to a file, dynamic link to the ghc runtime,
and then on start-up that program would just interpret the bytecode
like ghci does?

The purpose would be simply faster compile-and-restart times.
