nvidia driver was removed today after the update to 1.16 on xserver
today and I can't install it (tried both unstable and experimental
versions). The only way to do that would probably be by downgrading
the xserver packages.

Also, since the dkms package was not removed, the nouveau driver was
still blacklisted so after a reboot, X didn't start and I had to fix
everything from the console (not really a problem for me, but probably
a really annoying problem for the majority of users)

Please set a high priority on this one since it will for sure affect a
lot of users using this driver.
