    Currently it's not possible to load bytecode modules. It only supports loading (textual) LLVM IR modules (not lazily). I know is a library that loads bytecode modules, but not sure it's sufficient for your purpose.

    Let me introduce you to production grade brainfuck. We can use to compile it to a native binary with llvm optimizations. But to make it more usable, we can first run it through the c preprocessor (with gcc -E input_file) so we can split our brainfuck into multiple files and macros. Now we are really getting somewhere.
