Default Open Sourced/GPL or Alternative NVIDIA drivers?

Is there an alternate method or alternative open sourced/gpl'd nvidia drivers yet?

I see something on the sf.net about an "open nvidia driver", but no follow-ups.

Would an alternative method include the use of using framebuffer? Or other solution? Reason I'm asking is that I would like to avoid acpi/apm bugs and avoid tainting the kernel.

Thanks.

XFree86/xorg both come with open source nvidia drivers, "nv." nVidia does not release their own driver under the GPL or any other "open source" license.
