The perfect place to start would be support in LLVM backends, maybe they are already working on this.

I don’t know that that’s true. I doubt you could do this sort of redesign simply in an LLVM backend because a “hot” compiler would work differently at so many levels of abstraction. I think an easier place to start would be a self contained compiler with a little less scope than llvm. There we could figure out the patterns, find a clean set of internal APIs and make some sweet demos. And then with that approach the same task in LLVM.
