I believe it makes a lot of sense, yes. For writing the implementation of
individual operations, instead of assembler, there might be a way to write
them in some other language and compile them with an LLVM compiler. I don't
know if we would have to do it in C and install the C front-end, or if there
is some simpler C-like language "natively" supported by LLVM. But in both
cases such an approach might be helpful.
