Here is the patch.

Some notes:
- I am not sure if it's OK to modify Session in this place.
  Perhaps my code should be called from
  DriverPipeline.staticLink, but it has no access to
  module graph, and I didn't want to make such a
  big change
- I wanted to add .exe suffix on Windows, but if I think that
  GHC relies on mingw32 tools to add it when necessary.
- There is some documentatin in separate_compilation.xml.
  I wrote about the ability to put Main in file other than Main.hs,
  but I couldn't find documentation for this feature. Tell me if there
  are other places where this feature should be mentioned.
- I didn't check that docs are properly generated after my
  changes. Besides, the language can be incorrect.

Best regards
