[Oberon] any ideas remarks about compiler construction for TinyGo?

In my point of view this is more a kind of "religious debate" whether to follow recursive descent or table driven.
I personally like recursive descent...

    I'm,on the side, following the process of the construction of a compiler 
    for Golang for microcontrollers, Tinygo.
    They use the LLVM compiler toolchain. My question is, is this the right 
    way to create a new language.
    Being inspire  by this talk of Robert Greisemer
    where he shows the resemblance (heritage) of Go with Oberon, I wondered 
    if LLVM is the right way to do it.
    Griesemer is educated at  ETHZ, see for instance his research work.
    So I think using the compiler construction principles of Oberon would be 
    a better a way.
    Especially when you consider that LLVM is not a "one man system" but a 
    "conference" - system
    https://llvm.org/devmtg/2019-04/ that keeps a lot of good minds occupied 
    What are your thoughts?
