If you're going to do this in the long run, it would make more sense to distribute LLVM byte code and compile that to native code on the host... That way you have small diffs to the byte code, and also you get targeted optimization (and maybe even custom profile guided optimization).

I always wonder why C (and C like languages) don't have a loop like this:

do {
} while (condition) {

It seems easy to parse and would be quite useful since this kind of loop is all over the place... IMHO it's more readable than a while(1) loop with a break.
