Erhmm, it's on my todo list? Ok, that stopped being a good excuse a
long time ago...

I don't know how much work it would be to update the current
wheezy-bpo version of nvidia-graphics-drivers to what I uploaded to
sid a few weeks back. I'm also not sure if there's a specific reason
why Andreas left the wheezy-bpo branch with 319.xx instead of keeping
it up to date. The pkg-nvidia team is woefully short on manpower, so
if you'd like to help prepare and test a backport, that'd definitely
be appreciated.
