I think you misunderstand me: I wanted to avoid the recompilation step
when adding a breakpoint, that's all. The interface would be exactly
the same. You're right, the idea of using GHCi as the interactive
debugger is absolutely key: only GHCi has full information about the
program, so anything else would be a compromise.
