It seems to me that "referential transparency" as well as "the
executable don't embed it's source" aren't simple excuses, though you
don't seem to understand that Haskell isn't an interpreted language...

Similarly, the languages that offer an "eval()" as it is mostly called
are always interpreted, most other languages push this capability (if
they have it at all) on libraries, in Haskell you can try to use
hs-plugins for example.
