It would be nice if ghci had a mode which made it monitor the loaded source
files, and recompile them as soon as one of the files change.

jikes (IBM's opensource java compiler) does this, and it's very useful when
fixing compile errors since you don't need to switch to and from the editor.
I assume the new native threads stuff could be used here.
