I unfortunately noticed those too late.

I tried to downgrade xserver-xorg-core to 1.10.4-1 (package from
testing) but I am still unable to set up nvidia drivers and dkms
correctly. Apt-get still reports me unment dependencies errors as
reported on this pastebin.  (yes, it's italian, but I'm sure you'll
understand its output. That's what apt-get reports me when I try to
install 'xserver-xorg-video-nvidia' or 'nvidia-kernel-dkms', it then
asks me to run apt-get -f install and that will get back the updated
xserver-xorg-core package 1.11.x series)

sure, but consider fixing that when the ABI issue will be fixed.

See above. Nvidia drivers are totally unusable at the moment.
