are you seen hugs, for example? i think that ghc is slow because it's
written in haskell and compiled by itself

hugs provides good interactive environment and good ghc compatibility,
you can use conditional compilation to hide remaining differences.
unfortunately, many haskell libs doesn't support hugs
