As the original poster clarified, the motivating use-case is education (specifically a class of 12-13 year olds.) These are not "serious developers", but they have the potential to become serious. Placing unnecessary hurdles in their way will diminish the chances of their discovering Haskell to be a beautiful language.
Having said that, I do think that Hugs (or maybe Helium) would be a more appropriate environment for teaching the basics to young students.
