Subject: HLVM...
Interesting quote from a Wikipedia article on JIT compiling...

"...For instance, most Common Lisp systems have a compile function  
which can compile new functions created during the run. This provides  
many of the advantages of JIT, but the programmer, rather than the  
runtime, is in control of what parts of the code are compiled. This  
can also compile dynamically generated code, which can, in many  
scenarios, provide substantial performance advantages over statically  
compiled code, as well as over most JIT systems."
