I can't really help here.  But I'm interested in more powerful ways to
extend GHCi, too.  I'm mostly interested in things that will speedup
development (e.g. Hoogle tab-completion, integration of testing tools).

I think once we have a more powerful API to hook things into a running
GHCi, people will create useful things that you wouldn't have imagined
