Indeed LLVM/clang certainly seems capable enough since I have seen some
pretty good frontends and backends developed for it in the past.

I think it depends if the work started using GCC
(http://gcc.gnu.org/projects/cli.html) can be offset with the future
development speed or maintainability using LLVM.

However I am simply not skilled / knowledgeable enough in the matter or I
would love to create it myself!

As I understand we would need our compiler to generate a binary which also
hosts the CLR and runs the embedded bytecode. (As well as tonnes of other
stuff such as communicating native data with managed data and visa versa).
