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.

A bientot,
