Is this that hard to implement, really?
Probably, yes, and if you read around you will see the problem is wider than just the nvidia chipset (which is presumably why nvidia aren't committing to support). There's work going on outside nVidia though, and for some machines at least, there are workarounds. Depends on the distro you are using - just do a search for distro hybrid graphics with your machine name. You may be lucky.
