We actually started with OpenCL before looking at CUDA a few years ago,
but at the time the drivers were so poor we gave up. Right now we're
focusing on getting CUDA better first. Once we have that in better shape
(Anoop is working out a new design), supporting OpenCL should be
relatively straightforward as the fundamental designs are similar.
