I have implemented this. It's noticeably I/O-bound on GPU, but on decent hardware the performance is awesome compared to the old CPU format, even with a weak GPU. And OpenCL/CPU outperforms OpenMP by far: The latter scales very poorly for this format and the new format runs vectorized on CPU while we have yet to support SSE2 in the old one.

It passes Test Suite (actually the TS found a subtle bug that could have gone under the radar forever) and has full Unicode/codepage support.
