i can't agree with you. every time somebody reported an issue with 
nvidia, being even a performance regression, you personally closed it as 
"we can't do anything"

i'm hit with this issue and i know a dozen. this regression makes 
rendering antialised fonts in gtk 10 times slower and in kde when using 
non-antialiased fonts [1]

we have to think about our users first. your statistics say that nvidia 
is dominant in our community[2]
