what advantages would OpenCL have over OpenMP and pthreads?
OpenMP and pthreads are somewhat different beasts suiting two somewhat
different niches. Where would OpenCL overlap? Would it be a better
or worse fit than the others for different scenarios?
Probably supporting three different MP schemes is too crowded.
