I don't really know the best bikeshed color here. Jim?

My lame idea would be:

ExecutionEngine -> JIT
ExecutionEngine -> JIT/Legacy
ExecutionEngine/MCJIT -> JIT/MC
ExecutionEngine/OProfileJIT -> JIT/OProfile
ExecutionEngine/IntelJITEvenst -> JIT/IntelJITEvents
ExecutionEngine/RuntimeDyld -> JIT/RuntimeDyld

(maybe RuntimeDyld -> DynamicLoader ? Too direct?)

But not sure this is really an accurate model for the logical layering
of these libraries?
