LUA vs Lua... I'm new here :)
I have a possible application in mind that could involve running dozens
or hundreds of threads concurrently, and Lua forms part of the solution
architecture. It's just concept stuff though, it's probably a bit "out
there" for my client to seriously consider. However, it would be fun to
try it, even just for the intellectual exercise and geek-fun factor.

I assume you mean Lua :) Given OpenCL is based on C99, and the current
reference implementation is based on LLVM, I suspect all that's needed
is a wrapper and a few tweaks. Shouldn't be too difficult.
I'm having trouble imagining a situation where there'd be a significant
performance boost from running an interpreted general-purpose language
on your GPU, though. They're really only any good at highly parallel
