The first chapter of [Appel92] has a short discussion on selection of
intermediate representations.

    Author = "Andrew W. Appel",
    title = "{Compiling with continuations}",
    publisher = "Cambridge University Press",
    year = 1992

Whatever kind of representation you go for. Make it as simple as
possible and then simplify it some more. Complex intermediate
representations are a pain.
