You know, the way things are heading in the GPU space, perhaps that may not be
necessary. AMD just announced their next GPU architecture:


From page 6:

"In terms of base features the biggest change will be that GCN will implement
the underlying features necessary to support C++ and other advanced languages.
As a result GCN will be adding support for pointers, virtual functions,
exception support, and even recursion. These underlying features mean that

for the GPU, allowing them to more easily program for the GPU and CPU within the
same application."
