I think so too. If you want to use GPUs *now*, going for CUDA through
a port or a NIF is the right way. My vision is that we can create a
programming language (essentially domain-specific) for computations on
GPUs. Yet, the GPUs are currently too quickly changing so it is not
yet a stable enough platform.
