I'm not aware of theoretical drawbacks; it was removed due to lack of a maintainer (no one cared enough to keep it working).  I suspect you'd have a lot of work to do to get the old one working again.

Can someone please explain me what are some drawbacks of such a conversion and can I use the old backend code safely with current versions of llvm to convert IR into C or if there is some other safe way to achieve so?
