Almost, but not quite.  Since 6.2, GHC has the -e switch for invoking
expressions from the command line, which gets a step closer.  GHC
doesn't ignore the '#!' line yet, but I can add that.  Then, as far as
I'm aware, it should work, albeit a little slowly because it goes
through the ordinary GHCi startup which loads some packages etc.
