Obviosly tcc need split it self into a frontend and a backend.

I just have wrotten a IA32 backend, something like lightning but only for IA32
(RtAsm aka Runtime assembler); I use it to generate runtime code. It would be
easy built a bytecode intermediate language and use it as middle representation
between fron and back ends. TCC then only move C code into RtAsm and this one
into IA32, RISC or PPC etc.

it is only a suggestion.
