My WISP and Wisp628 programmers have done this for years. From the DOS
(or Linux) command line you give a command like

  xwisp go myprogram tty 2400

This programs the target chip with myprogram.hex, runs it, and puts you
in a simple TTY mode (terminal emulator) in which you communicate with
the target chip using RB6 and RB7 (the programming pins). Variantions
allow for inverted polarity, using other pins, other baudrates, etc.
