Erlang on LLVM? or: Outsource your JIT!
Has anyone been working on using LLVM to do just-in-time code generation for the Erlang virtual machine?

Depending on the design and structure of the Erlang virtual machine, it doesn't seem like it would be all that tough a project. And it could provide a nice performance boost for those projects that are starting to use Erlang like CouchDB and ejabberd.

For an example of what I'm talking about, there's a project called VMKit that has implemented the Java and .NET virtual machines atop LLVM with reasonable performance. Essentially, if you have a virtual machine, rather than skipping either just-in-time or static code generation entirely, or trying to do it all yourself for some specific platform on which you want to run, take a look at what you can do with LLVM and see if you can leverage its code generation instead.
