I agree on this point. THe sooner we can get open source functionality in the realm of the 3D acceleration the better. I don't like putting proprietary binary code into my kernel, but I do it for now because there is no other viable alternative.
And of course nvidia isn't going to open up it's driver code, I'm sure there is intellectual property in there they may not even own themselves. The best we can do is support this nouveau proect.
