What are the dependency issues?

Unfortunately we can't as Primus is in MAIN but nvidia-driver is in
NON-FREE. And more importantly Primus can work with Nouveau as well.

The nvidia-driver-libs metapackage is the right entry point, installing
the i386 version is the supported to way to run 32bit applications, as
they might be using not only GLX but also EGL and so on.

Kind regards,
