According to the original post of this thread, it is not as stable as
nv.  Does the nv driver render your virtual terminals busted or kill
your gnome session as stated in the original post?  If so, then the nv
driver is far more unstable than I had thought.

Not only should you add a note to the release notes, you should
probably also add a Conflicts with compiz to try and put a minimal
amount of n00b protection in the package.
