Nice too see some progress :-)

Are there any problems you encounter with the nvidia driver packaging in
Debian? Please also test with nvidia-kernel-common and glx-alternative-*
from experimental (they change the kernel module blacklist handling to
be controlled with the glx alternatives, a update-initramfs call may be
needed in addition to update-alternatives, but therefore you can disable
the blacklist without manually doing rm or dpkg --purge).

One of the goals of the current packaging is usability in live systems -
having all the proprietary drivers co-installable and allow them to be
installed but deactivated, so that some (yet to be written) utility
could detect hardware, switch alternatives, and create X config.
It would be nice if bumblebee would somehow integrate in this.
(Disclaimer: I don't do anything -live myself.)
