Maybe this for now:

"This is a small self applicable scheme compiler for LLVM.

The code is quite similar to the code in the book SICP (Structure and
Interpretation of Computer Programs), chapter five, with the difference
that it implements the extra functionality that SICP assumes that the
explicit control evaluator (virtual machine) already have. Much
functionality of the compiler is implemented in a subset of scheme,
llvm-defines, which are compiled to llvm functions."

modulo my mistakes in English :). Or, write whatever you like.
