[LLVMdev] Question about SPARC target status

I've noticed SPARC target lacks some of functionality (only asm printer 
is implemented with no binary code emitter and no 64-bit ABI support).

Are there any (probably uncommited) advances in these areas? The most 
needed feature for me is sparc64 support. If I decide to implement these 
ones by myself what are the problems/guidelines/whatever? Why hasn't 
this been done before? I mean is it some technical problem or just lack 
of time?

Best Regards
