ah - I wasn't thinking.  by NV, I meant to abbreviate the company name
(and refer to the closed driver that calls itself "nvidia") rather than 
the xorg driver which calls itself "nv"...

the nvidia driver does provide hw accell on quadro cards, which are 
just minor variants of non-quadro versions.

I haven't had problems with either nv or nvidia drivers.
