Proof of concept of using the LLVM JIT compiler to load Python extension modules.

Python & LLVM Extension Modules

This is a quick proof of concept of using the LLVM JIT compiler as Python's extension module loader. This implelentation completely replaces the standard extension module framework, so regular extension modules cannot be loaded. It would not be too difficult to extend the patch to allow loading both LLVM bitcode (.bc) and regular extension (.so) modules.

An Python re-implementation of hierarchical module import.
Function names and arguments have been chosen to mimic the C code in
`Python/import.c` whenever possible.
This code is intended to be read, not executed. However, it does work
-- all you need to do to enable it is "import knee".
(The name is a pun on the klunkier predecessor of this module, "ni".)
