    The fact that a ghc installation is needed at runtime is indeed a weak point of the library, but I want to point out that hint is not calling the ghc executable at runtime, it is calling the ghc library, which in turn assumes the presence of a bunch of files on your machine. The easiest way to get those files on your machine is to install ghc, but it's not the only way! I have a proof of concept demonstrating how it is possible to bundle those files with your project so that your end users don't have to install ghc themselves. That proof of concept was recently extended to a real world use case in; /u/yaxu, did that end up working? Is there anything you or I could do to make it easier for the next person to apply those ideas to their project?
