A very radical solution would be to get rid of all C, and go for a "pure 
Python" solution. NumPy could build up a text string with OpenCL code on 
the fly, and use the OpenCL driver as a "JIT compiler" for fast array 
expressions. Most GPUs and CPUs will support OpenCL, and thus there will 
be no need for a compiled language like C or Fortran for fast 
computation in the near future.
