Ragel output for LLVM

Hello to all,

We have been thinking of writing a Ragel to LLVM IR extension, I searched if a similar project did exist already and it’s listed under http://clang.llvm.org/OpenProjects.html:

Use clang libraries to extend Ragel with a JIT: Ragel is a state machine compiler that lets you embed C code into state machines and generate C code. It would be relatively easy to turn this into a JIT compiler using LLVM.

As anyone started development on this?
Scality has a few developers that could start/help on a Ragel to LLVM IR project.
