Sounds reasonable, except I hate code freezes :)

A bigger problem is that nearly all GPU formats are very immature, but
Solar wants them in there (and I do not object to that in general) for
next Jumbo. So what should we do to make them better? Personally I took
great care that the RAR format would "behave" for any OpenCL target I
could produce (including CPU) but regardless, it just fails very ugly on
Solar's 7970. And this is a problem with most of the GPU formats. Should
we just ignore this? Or should we go through heaps to make them better
in this aspect?
