OpenCL support is something I was eyeing with myself, but for now, I
think it would make more sense to work on hwaccel in general first. If
the interface for modules is simple enough, it will be much easier to
add any kind of hardware support.

Are you thinking of decoding specifically or using OpenCL for any
operation where it would make sense to accelerate?
