I think you're somewhat joking about using Haskell, but your script

egallego@exodo2:~/tmp$ ls -lh a.out
-rwxr-xr-x 1 egallego egallego 182K 2006-01-30 00:19 a.out

This is including all the Haskell runtime. Using a shared runtime
would be the optimal solution, as the compiled module is about 9Kb
(without stripping):

-rw-r--r-- 1 egallego egallego 9652 2006-01-30 00:19 Main.o

and stripped:

-rw-r--r-- 1 egallego egallego 3584 2006-01-30 00:25 Main.o

However, AFAIK GHC doesn't support sharing the runtime.
