Is the correct (and working) interface already packaged;

Sort of.

You'll need the headers for the bpo kernel in addition to the image package.

Then you'll want module-assistant, nvidia-glx, and nvidia-kernel-source.

Once these are installed and you're running the new kernel the following (as root) should compile and install the nvidia kernel module:

m-a a-i nvidia-kernel

- Will the newer NVidia proprietary drivers, required for 2.6.16 or
2.6.17, work with XFree86 from sarge? If not, will they work with X.Org
from bpo?

AFAIK, they work with both.
