>Is there interest in an LLVM library? My motivation is to simplify the dynamic creation of functions, modules, and programs by defining an EDSL modeled after the C language. LLVM provides an API based exclusively on function calls that is verbose and difficult to use. The EDSL is more expressive and easier to use. (This may remind some people of Boost.Python and indeed these libraries are similar in motivation.)

If this can be used to (reasonably) easily make runtime JITed functions callable from the running executable it would be very useful.
