Yep. It's worth noting though: 1) this is true whether you go through
hs-plugins or hint or raw GHC API. (Although Hint/raw API may be
smaller - my Mueval binary is 13M total.) 2) You can shrink the binary
a fair bit with 'strip' 3) Such binaries compress *very* well with
utilities such as UPX. 4) This size may improve whenever dynamic
libraries come and static linking is not the default.
