I've been looking into something similar... currently, my best option
is looking like deliberately causing a core dump and editing the core
file to run as a binary (or even more hackishly, just using gdb.) If
there's a less filthy way to do it, I'd love to hear about it. (I know
about Data.Binary, but it seems inelegant to have to write out
instances for something that exists already in memory - you should be
able to just blat it back in.)
