The ability to load and unload compiled code in a running application?
Perhaps hint offers that now ?

Specifically, I believe you could have a function 'foo', and you could load
a new version of 'foo' while the programming was running, and the running
code would start using the new version instead.. I can't quite remember the
details though. 'runtime linking' might be a term to describe it..
