almost every kernel upgrade I have to disable the nvidia driver (proprietary)

Almost every kernel upgrade X is broken and I have to disable the nvidia
proprietary drivers in the xorg.conf. It always takes a few days/hours
before there build against the new kernel. For me this is not a real
problem because I know what to do but for other users :S. 

Can't something be done for this?
I see 2 options:
-build nvidia package immediately after building kernel packages. 
-make nvidia package incompatible with new kernel package and let
apt-get auto uninstall it and replace nvidia into nv in the xorg.conf
