I think that the nVIDIA drivers (nvidia-glx, etc.) should be 
backported. This is because nVIDIA releases GNU/Linux 
drivers frequently. New drivers from nVIDIA add support for
newer video cards. Newer nVIDIA drivers also provide much
better support for X.org's Composite and Render 
extensions. The final release of Dapper is going to have 
older drivers already; so if you don't want to backport the 
nVIDIA drivers for Breezy, could you backport them for
