But not on a 1680x1050 resolution, I suppose.
Methinks you're probably on a stretched lower resolution?
I can understand why people want X and fb to work well together. The console given by nvidiafb is gorgeous, much better than vesafb. And it's not just a matter of aesthetics: I like smaller fonts because for me it's easier to read and I like having more to see without scrolling too much. Is this something extremely necessary? No. But if we are going to overthink about this, neither are high resolutions for X or non-monochromatic monitors.
I think you're believing too much that what's good enough for you should be good enough for everyone.
