Well you could use -gpu as a prefix. And actually, CUDA formats could use that prefix too except where they clash (currently crypt-md5 and phpass). So an OpenCL build would have ssha-gpu, raw-md5-gpu, nt-gpu, raw-sha1-gpu, cryptmd5-gpu, phpass-gpu and mysql-sha1-gpu. A CUDA build would have cryptmd5-gpu, phpass-gpu, cryptsha256-gpu, cryptsha512-gpu, mscash-gpu, mscash2-gpu, rawsha256-gpu and rawsha224-gpu. A GPU build (ie. both) would have ssha-gpu, raw-md5-gpu, nt-gpu, raw-sha1-gpu, cryptmd5-gpu, cryptmd5-cuda, phpass-gpu, phpass-cuda, mysql-sha1-gpu, cryptsha256-gpu, cryptsha512-gpu, mscash-gpu, mscash2-gpu, rawsha256-gpu and rawsha224-gpu. Maybe that would be confusing? But in some ways it would be less confusing - the user only cares about using GPU, she won't care if it's CUDA or OpenCL under the hood. Just thinking out loud here. magnum
