But hiding away the compilation step from the user does not turn a 
compiler language into an interpreter language. There is no benefit in 
doing so. You can simply compile your programs and then use the 
executable in your scripts. Where is the problem? Why insist on doing 
this in the background?

I doubt that. It was not made for this.
