Agreed, xorg now works pretty well by itself most of the time, but
without my screen and monitor sections this computer gives me a
black screen and nothing else, hence the extra bits. All my other
machines work great without a xorg.conf file, but they use free drivers.
After reading your message I tried removing this legacy sections and it
failed again.

My intention wasn't to point a lack of work or efficiency from debian
nvidia maintainer(s), I can only praise and thank them for their work.
It has happened in the past that non-free drivers lagged a bit behind a
xorg version bump, and since they are non-free software I wouldn't blame
anyone in Debian for this if it happened again. Today it's true that
they are kept in sync and up-to-date with an amazing efficiency. Awesome
