It would be, if not for one small problem:  there are no front ends 
available to feed code to your new backend, unless you plan on writing 
one yourself.  llvm-gcc cannot be built with VC++ and cannot be linked 
to an llvm that is.  The best you can do is to use bytecodes produced by 
an llvm-gcc built elsewhere, but be aware they will have dependencies on 
the gcc runtime for that elsewhere.  But you can't beat its debugger :)
