Yes, but the current plan is to migrate Debian to X.Org after sarge

Okay.  I'm glad to hear that you're able to use your hardware in Debian in
a more satisfactory way, but I am sorry that it's not currently possible
with the free software in Debian unstable.

For what it's worth, an updated "nv" driver (though not all the way up to
XFree86 4.4.0) will be in 4.3.0.dfsg.1-7, and I've already got a report
that it supports even more hardware than it claims too.  You might get
lucky with your Quadro FX 1100.
