Default Current overclocking options in Linux?

What are my options for overclocking my 6800GT in Linux?

I know I can reflash the video BIOS, but I'd prefer something a little less permanent. Are there any driver tweaks I can do in this environment to get a little more performance out of my card?

As far as I know, the only linux overclocking tool is NVClock. It seems that 6800 level OCability is still in development, but it is farther along then last time I checked...

In fact, the developer is currently requesting feedback on his latest cvs code, from his website ( http://www.linuxhardware.org/nvclock/ ) :

Tuesday December 28 2004
The last couple of weeks I have been adding new code to cvs. In it is a rewritten GTK client (allmost done), bios parsing, Geforce6 support and more. Mainly the Geforce6 overclocking code is highly experimental and it could use some testing. The overclocking code itself works but sometimes a clock that you used before can be instable and crash the box. Beside Geforce6 overclocking there is also GeforceFX code in cvs but my wrapper isn't fully cleaned up yet so it can't be used yet but I hope to commit the code soon too. If you can test the code and I hope to receive lots of bugreports so that NVClock 0.8 can be released in the near future.
