I thought there was an OpenCL implementation that was under a
permissive BSD-style license, but I can't find it anymore. OpenCL is
only a specification; it's specific implementation that are under this
or that license. I thought I had seen a free one, but perhaps I was
mistaken. Which one were you looking at?

IIRC, the discussion about OpenCL revolved around whether its API represents a true standard (i.e. on par with say BLAS). And assuming it does represent a standard, whether the existence of a fully functional free implementation of the standard is necessary before it can be used in octave. I don't think there was a consensus opinion on either of these questions.
