Well given the kernel isn't in unstable, it didn't seem like a problem
in need of a fix yet.  Now given I was thinking of going to 2.6.27 or 28
to try and fix my webcam and I want my nvidia card to stay working, it
may just have become an issue for me so I guess I should go work on the
next version and see when Randall wants to do something with it.

I guess we could consider packaging up the 180.x driver in experimental
or something.  It is a beta driver though and generally those have not
been packaged up.  Usually we just patch the driver to work with newer
kernels when needed.
