+1 I think that this will be super helpful, thank you Florian!

From the conversations that I had during LLVM Dev, Kaleidoscope isn't
as helpful beginner tutorial as we tend to think. IMHO, self-contained
examples like Florian is proposing are more useful. Meike Baumgärtner
presented a great talk on the matter.
If we want to keep the number of extra CMake flags to minimum, maybe it
would be worth considering such examples as _opt_ plugins? This could
then leverage the mechanism proposed here:
1. Phab patch: https://reviews.llvm.org/D61446?id=221321#change-uAgt0khUmRhe
2. RFC: http://lists.llvm.org/pipermail/llvm-dev/2019-May/132128.html
Just my 2c.
