As for predictions on future development for the nv30 driver -- it's anyone's guess. I may look at it later, but right now I'm playing around with the nv50 driver, and don't have a nv30/40 card plugged in. If you're at all interested in trying this yourself, join us at #nouveau on freenode and we'll give you some pointers. (No prior GPU/OpenGL/etc experience necessary, but programming experience is.)
