Default non base=2 GPU sieving?

Is there any software or plans to develop one that enables such a sieve on a GPU?
I am sure I have read about it somewhere but I cannot find it now

mfaktc is in the wishlist stage of moving the sieve to the GPU. wblipp asked if mfaktc could look at Riesel numbers; this is also at the wishlist stage.

I've posted about my plan before: re-implement a fixed-K sieve with Pollard's rho algorithm for logarithms. Done right, that should work for different bases as well.

On the other hand, I have no plans to implement this, and I don't know of anyone else who's taken up the cause.
