Mmm, possibly. I seem to recall it being instantaneous on my old AMD K6 
500MHz with both Hugs and GHCi. But it was a while ago...

Certainly only Hugs as the nice feature of automatically reloading your 
source every time you hit save. I really miss that in GHCi. [OTOH, if 
you're going to do this, expect lots of "hey, this doesn't parse!" type 
messages. undefined is your friend!]
