I haven't really thought this through and I don't yet have a strong 
opinion on this. I just thought that Frank's idea got positive feedback.

But I don't quite understand what we are talking about specifically. 
What are our options?

For the example that was posted earlier in this thread I'd prefer the 
following solution:

--- a/src/common-opencl.c
+++ b/src/common-opencl.c
@@ -1733,8 +1733,8 @@ void opencl_find_best_gws(int step, unsigned long 
long int max_run_time,
                     (buffer_size * kpc * 1.1 >
                      get_max_mem_alloc_size(gpu_id)))) {
                         if (options.verbosity > 4)
-                               fprintf(stderr, "Hardware resources "
-                                       "exhausted\n");
+                               fprintf(stderr,
+                                   "Hardware resources exhausted\n");

Is this what you dislike?
