No no, I already did that, a long time ago, in 68000 assembly :)

I'm just interested in seeing if the interpreter/compiler/linker
infrastructure can be used as a library on both Linux/Windows/OSX, and for
creating plugins at runtime. When using Microsoft's C#/.NET I used that a
lot. On that platform it is very easy to generate code on the fly, call the
C# compiler, emit code, load code, creating "plugins". But Microsoft.NET
does not support Haskell :( F# is a good step forward, but it's not lazy,
and I am.
