Tried it on Bull and on OSX. I think it's starting to look really good already, I tried non-OpenCL formats, OpenCL ones, --test all/single formats and --list=opencl-devices. The latter is OK for now, we might come up with some cosmetical changes later but that is not important at all. Anyway all vendor-specific output seem to work for both nvidia and AMD.

Personally I'd like to change

Using device 0: GeForce GTX 570

to just

Device 0: GeForce GTX 570

but that might not be the most important thing to bother with... On another less important note I think we should add the AMD specific name if available (list-devices shows this), so instead of just

Device 1: Tahiti

it could be

Device 1: Tahiti (AMD Radeon HD 7900 Series)

or perhaps

Device 1: AMD Radeon HD 7900 Series (Tahiti)

For parsing, try to follow how --groups are parsed in options.c and getopt.[ch]. It seems the provided functions can do most things we need. I haven't looked at it now but I'd expect some "documentation" within getopt.h.
