I tried it (15-20 years ago?), and thought it was cool.  You edited a 
function, and while you were browsing, the function recompiled and 
relinked itself into your running debugging session.  It was a tool you 
could use to debug functions, but later you would end up taking your 
.[ch] files to a compiler and building code you could ship.

I had friends who were working on Lisp Machines and Connection 
Machines.  To them it was interesting but comic.
