 Currently GHC produces LLVM's textual intermediate representation. While
 this is easy to produce, it's not the path recommended by LLVM's
 developers. Instead, they [[http://llvm.org/docs/DeveloperPolicy.html#ir-
 backwards-compatibility|recommend]] that compilers produce LLVM bitcode,
 which they maintain much stronger backwards compatibility guarantees on.

 It seems sensible to move the backend over to this format.
