+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.
