On the other hand, people could contribute to the nouveau[0] project, which
does indeed have source code, and is making visible progress creating a set
of free drivers. We can whine about nvidia until armageddon, but why not be
productive instead?

Please note that when I say "contribute" I mean actually writing code and
not just talking about it or bothering the current developers, who seem to
have their hands full already just trying to do the hard work to bring
these drivers to fruition.
