It's a possibility, but I'm not sure how much it'll help you; writing
the bits you need from scratch shouldn't be much harder than making
ObjC calls in an interpreter.

I don't think anyone outside of clang is using it at the moment.

On a side note, it's better to ask this sort of question on cfe-dev.
