Well, i have a similar system planned in the matrix library that
Boost.SIMD is extarcted from (http://nt2.sourceforge.net).
I think it's slightly out of scope for a strictly SIMD library.
Implementationwise, it is doable I think as the core library is already
split up upon extension detection. Adding another level is easy. But I
fear the performance won't be that great as we'll run lots of small
scale operation when GPGPU prefer large amounts of data (hence this
being more a model for a matrix library).
