Nouveau is a great project, it provides very fast 2d for GeForce 6xxx and 7xxx, and work on GeForce 8xxx and 9xxx is ongoing, however none of the developers use *BSD, so they cannot provide the kernel module needed for it to work on *BSD's. This would indeed benefit freebsd community by providing a good alternative to proprietary nvidia drivers, which only work on i386.
