[LLVMdev] LLVM features that ought to be surfaced in a higher-level language?

I've been out of touch with the LLVM community for a few years, and so I
haven't kept up on all of the changes and improvements that have been added
lately. I've been wondering if someone on this list would care to summarize
what features of LLVM would be appropriate to expose as features of
languages built on top of LLVM. In other words, if you were building a new
LLVM-based language for general programming, how your language's feature
set be affected by the capabilities already in LLVM? I'm focusing on
language, and not compiler, features - so for example "faster code" is a
compiler feature which doesn't usually affect the design of the language.
