Question Will we ever see an amd64 NVidia driver for FreeBSD?

The subject line says it all. There are *lots* of us out here with NVidia-based amd64 boxes who would be thrilled and delighted to see proper accelerated support for our graphics hardware. While the "nv" driver included in the xorg distribution does work, it has definite limitations, particularly in the area of hardware-based acceleration, 2-D, 3-D or otherwise.

I there are any specific technical hindrances holding up progress on the development of an amd64 driver for FreeBSD, please don't hesitate to contact any of the following FreeBSD mailing lists, which are simply rife with knowledgeable, helpful people:

freebsd-amd64
freebsd-arch
freebsd-bugs
freebsd-current
freebsd-drivers
freebsd-hackers
freebsd-hardware
freebsd-multimedia
freebsd-stable
freebsd-x11

All of the above are hosted on "@FreeBSD.org", of course.

Thank you for your time and consideration re: this matter.

Sincerely,

Conrad J. Sabatier
