Right, it is not required that the main I/O action must have
the name "main". Actually, Curry implementations like the
Muenster Curry Compiler or PAKCS uses "main" as a default
main action but provide options to change this default
and provide any goal expression of type I/O in order to compile
stand-alone applications. Furthermore, they have also a Hugs-like
interactive top-level environment where any expression can be supplied
for evaluation.
