Yep, I guess so. Splitting nvidia-settings up should be fairly
straight-forward compared to the driver packages; it looks like the
only change that's needed after forking nvidia-settings trunk would be
to trim d/control down to a single binary package. For the sake of a
cleaner svn history, we might want to upload the latest
nvidia-settings release to sid first, then fork it to create a
-legacy-340xx package?
