You can have as many modules per context as you wish, and as many  
contexts as you wish.
Modules belonging to different contexts are essentially isolated from  
each other.  You can't,
for now at least, link them together or anything.  It might be  
possible in the future, but it will
be significantly heavier weight than linking two modules in the same

I'm honestly not sure, and this is not an explicit goal of the  
LLVMContext work.  Patches are welcome, though. :-)
