Yes, they tell me that if you have nouveau installed (and no xorg.conf),
that's what ought to get used. So it'd be interesting to see if things
work better or worse with nouveau. nv is now really around only for
compatibility with a couple of chips that don't work right with nouveau
yet, for compatibility, and for comparison purposes for the nouveau
maintainer / authors. nouveau is The Way Forward, and it's the driver we
care most about - if your card works with nouveau, we don't care much if
it fails with nv :)
