Nobody knows. Debian NVIDIA Maintainers currently severely lack manpower. As
Randall wrote several time, any help is welcome. On a quite related note,
there's also a severe lack of bug triaging. I plan to get back to it once an
issue with the BTS is solved.

Good question, I don't think this has been discussed yet. It's not clear
what's the etch and a half plan for updated LKM sources and new prebuilt
modules (if there's any). I think a possibility would be:
optionally add nvidia-graphics-drivers-current (name is just an idea)
In any case, strictly speaking, nvidia-graphics-drivers (the source package)
will be kept in etch.
