That is a good idea.

The caveat is that people needing quick changes to their backends (for
fixing buildbots, for instance) would have the chance to break the dummy
back-end and slow down bug-fixing, or end up disabling some tests on the
dummy backend just to fix the problem. I can't predict how much of it will
actually impact day-to-day development, but it'd be crucial to have some
code owner that would keep it tidy and relevant.


I've forked your repository in GitHub and I'll give it a try to make it
work on the new LLVM, but if you have some time, feel free to do it, too. ;)
