I asked previously about the possibility of funding some development of
the Octave JIT (see below, I don't think I received any replies). I have
a company and might be in a position to do this in the future. I don't
think I received any reply, is there any interest in this at all?
Further to what I wrote below, there is also this:
It seems to hide much of the complexity of LLVM (and the need to update
for the LLVM API, as the library maintainers will hopefully do this).
I am also wondering about the possibility of funding some work on the
JIT in the future. If any of the core devs is in a position to do this
it would be interesting to get an idea of what it might cost to make
some substantial progress on the JIT.

So, to be clear, are you suggesting you could also contribute money to a
project to work on this?
I don't have anyone in mind to do the work, I was hoping someone on the
list might be able to do it, or be able to suggest someone who could.
I need to get an idea of the costs of getting work done. To be clear
again, we don't actually have a budget right now to fund it, but can
work it into future plans if we know it could be done and someone was
available to do it. I also know at least one other company who might be
interested in contributing, beyond my own.
