I don't know. It is an interesting development, but I've got a
feeling that you have to address the hardware very specifically
to get worthwhile performance. My gut feeling is that
abstractions would be a bad idea…
So maybe this will be best suited for very narrow domains where
you can rely on third party libraries (e.g. statistical signal
processing and other fields) or narrow applications that can
afford to tune very carefully to the underlying hardware.
