[Flac-dev] GPU-enabled FLAC encoder available

there is no work on the reference tools because it's not very
portable (way less than the current asm optimizations).  the
third party implementations are good enough I think.

Is anyone on this mailing list working on enabling FLAC using GPUs?
There is CUDA (GPU) accelerated FLAC encoder available now at:http://www.cuetools.net/doku.php/flacuda

It has a chart with speedup results and here is a summary:Compared to reference flac 1.2.1 on Core i7 940, it runs approximately 10 times faster on GeForce GTX 285, when using higher compression ratios (modes -7, -8). FlaCuda -8 is faster than flac -0, and provides better compression than flac -8. 

I am not a FLAC developer, but am curious to find out how 3rd party projects like this oneare interfaced into the FLAC sourceforge project.
