Perhaps making -keep-hc-files a bit more documented would be one
solution. Adding a feature to Cabal for building a tarball of 
.hc files generated from the haskell sources and a shell script 
for building the the library/executables from those.

This could be faster and easier to implement than creating a version of
the RTS running under the JVM.
