There are other ways of adding Haskell as a scripting language -  
bundling ghc is not necessary.

We give Haskell as a embedded scripting language to non-programmers,  
and they love it.  They especially like the strong typing, which finds  
their bugs before they ever get the chance to run their script.  The  
terseness and lack of similarity to other programming languages is  
another benefit.
