I think the original author is in the best position to write something like that. It shouldn't take long to describe the basic idea of what he has done - just an outline. Anyway, I think writing a guide is not so much an issue of skill, but of time ... :-(
HP's Dynamo, Intel's IA32-EL, Transmeta and others have shown that there is definite potential in re-optimizing binary code. It is possible that an advanced optimizing code generator for QEMU could even outperform native code! Of course it would have to go significantly beyond the current QEMU infrastructure and rely on dynamic recompilation, trace optimization, etc. Some more info on this subject is available here: http://www.cag.csail.mit.edu/rio/#pubs/
In any case I will definitely take a closer look at Paul Brook's work. BTW, how does it address portability ?
