Xorg packages vs Nvidia's driver? (RESEND)

This problem persists in Sid. Almost anything Xorg or OpenGL that gets updated
necessitates reinstalling the Nvidia stuff, both kernel module and other
stuff. No so bad a trip but ....
Seems to me that the Nvidia stuff should not go to /usr or /usr/lib
or /usr/X11R6 .../modules where Xorg stuff normally goes. Should have its own
directories and these specified in xorg.conf. Actually, their installer
tries, cites a "modular" Xorg installation and requests an "sdk". Failing
that, it places things in the "standard" directories.
The installer has an --x-prefix option which they recommend only under "rare
circumstances". There are --x-module-path (defaults to ...xorg/modules now)
and --x-library-path (defaults to --x-prefix/lib) as well
Anyone use these to straighten this out? Which options?
The debian package of the Nvidia driver DRI did not work when I tried that?
Where does this now place its items?
