[Haskell-cafe] What is the status of GPU-accelerated Haskell?

Hi, there is an OpenCL / Haskell thread floating around the ML, mostly it's
a dew ppl talking about merging the 5 (or so) bindings to the OpenCL api and
getting spiffy multi-threaded haskell-awesomeness out of that.  i think they
are discussing the benefits/drawbacks of a pure-ish api conversion or a more
haskell-ish conversion, or some combination thereof.

either way, it exsists, and it's happening (though i'm not so sure about
CUDA bindings...  but OpenCL will work on Nvidia & ATI cards the same)
