That is how I mostly use NumPy, though. Computations I often do in
Fortran 95 or C.
NumPy arrays on the GPU memory is an easy task. But then I would have to
write the computation in OpenCL's dialect of C99? But I'd rather program
everything in Python if I could. Details like GPU and OpenCL should be
hidden away. Nice looking Python with NumPy is much easier to read and
write. That is why I'd like to see a code generator (i.e. JIT compiler)
