Getting current drivers into backports is on our ToDo list, but first we
need to split off new nvidia-drivers-legacy-340xx packages from the
version currently in sid.

Using the drivers from experimental should be save and smooth as we plan
to only upload new upstream stable releases (no betas) there until we
have finished the preparations in sid.
