Hey, i'll standardize the optimizer passes interface, add libltdl, and
make it so the backend can dynamically load the passes from shared
libs, if you'll handle the Makefile portion. 

What's that noise? It sounded like someone running away screaming?

Is there any disagreement that about the only thing we could do to
