Eli and an undergraduate (Alex Friedman) started on this a few years ago
and got reasonably far. They could compile a bunch of small stuff, and the
LLVM developer was highly responsive to requests back then (still at UIUC). 
But Matthew's effort on jitting via gnu lightning was better and so the 
llvm project was abandoned.
