The analogy between the two is slim, but the Python spec does things
the other way around, where the .o files are not generated until
install time. This has to do with the nature of source code in
python. Which ever method we utilize, we have precedent for both. I
would like to encourage the notion though that Haskell is more like
Python than in C, so we can interest a variety of high level
