IMHO it should be possible to add a "mod_runhugs" module to Apache,
which implements exactly that except that it doesn't require any
compilation of code at all. As far as I know, Hugs does already have a
server mode where code can be sent via IPC for execution, doesn't it?

Something like this would certainly be useful, and if it's based on
Apache, many people could use without any trouble.
