As discussed before, Khronos has been working on a specification for WebCL,
a JavaScript API that exposes GPUs and multi-core processors for intensive
compute tasks. The latest version of the working draft is available here:

Over the past weeks, some discussion involving WebCL took place in this
mailing list ([2]), when some concerns were raised, and to which I later on
tried to address in [3].

At this time, I would like to contribute our WebCL prototype implementation
[4] to WebKit.org.

Feature would be defined behind a ENABLE(WEBCL) feature flag, and work will
be tracked onhttps://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=115457.

Let me know if you have any comments or concerns.
