Is there any description of the type system of LLVM more detailed  than 
ProgrammersManual.html ?
I am a newbie to LLVM and I spent quite some time browsering the source code 
trying to truly understand the type resolution example in the 
ProgrammersManual.html (e.g. Why "NewSTy" is potentially invalidated, how 
StrutTy is updated,etc). So I think a documentation on the overall logical 
structure of this design maybe rather helpful to all newbies :)
