If you're thinking of doing a backend, the LLVM project would probably
benefit more from implementing the virtual backend and its
Interpreter/JIT. This is a long standing project that could dramatically
increase the performance of the ExecutionEngine. The idea is to write a
backend for a virtual machine that closely matches the semantics of LLVM
and then implement the virtual machine. 

But, MIPS sounds cool too :)
