Would linking to LLVM be useful? Or is that too heavyweight a
dependency? If an LLVM backend was made that would also ease porting
to 64 bit. I'm not a big fan of using it since it moves further away
from pure Self code.

Klein has an assembler but I think it is Sparc and PowerPC. It might
serve as a base to add x86 though.
