I'd call that a "compiler" rather than an "assembler",
since CIL executables are much higher-level than native code executables.

And if I was going to implement such a compiler, rather than doing so
from scratch, I'd do it by reusing one of the many high-quality portable
compiler infrastructures around, e.g. GCC, ML-RISC, VPO, etc.
