Interesting ... but a little rough for my tastes.  I'm always amazed at how
determined some folks are to hack their way into stuff.  I think that a PC
with a decent GFORCE gpu and the CUDA library might be the easier route for
CAML -> GPGPU oriented experiments.

BTW, the idea of an OCaml based DSL for the cell processor or various GPUs
is a proposed summer intern project at Jane St. Capital's site
(, so there seems to be
an audience for this kind of stuff.  

In fact, GPGPU in general seems like an incredibly hot topic right now and
NVIDIA's support by way of the CUDA architecture is kind of an interesting
