I'm interested in your experience with LLVM.  We used it to create the
Shark Java VM, but we had a lot of difficulty with LLVM JIT stability
on non-x86 targets.  If LLVM is looking healthier it might be
interesting to revisit Shark, which essentially combines HotSpot and
LLVM to create a portable JVM.
