I don't see the point of such a filter. Redundant. We already have a
properly implemented OpenCL filter support (and there's a patch to make it
accept generic kernels). This is a quick hack which requires 2 copies and
that's slow and inefficient.
Instead, how about a tutorial on how to convert glsl to opencl kernels?
