RFC: An Extension Mechanism for Parallel Compilers Based on LLVM

This appears this is an incremental extension mechanism for openMP-type systems.

I was wondering if the authors are familiar with halide (halide-lang.org) or the recent Tiramisu paper (https://arxiv.org/pdf/1804.10694.pdf).

These compilers can target a vastly wider range of hardware architectures one of which could be openMP and get amazing performance results.

While I think it is most likely out of scope for current work it may be helpful to keep these more specialized compilers in mind.
