I've written a VM in OCaml built upon LLVM using LLVM's OCaml bindings:

Performance of the bindings? Fine.

My only gripe with LLVM's OCaml bindings is the way an error caught on the 
LLVM side causes my program to die in a way that the stack trace is 
unobtainable. So I resort to massively verbose debug logs. I'd much rather 
the bindings reraised errors as exceptions on the OCaml side.
