Interested people might consider using GNU lightning, which is a C API
to generate machine code (on x86, PowerPC and Sparc), using a RISCuy
abstraction (with 6 integer registers & 8 floating point registers)
quite similar to above.

See http://savannah.gnu.org/projects/lightning for more. If
interested, you'll better use the CVS snapshot of Lightning (which has
important bugs corrected w.r.t. the old 1.1 release).

Sorry for the shameless plug, but
http://cristal.inria.fr/~starynke/ocamljit.html contains a paper
http://cristal.inria.fr/~starynke/starynke_ocamljit_july2004.ps which
has (among other) a summary of Lightning features.
