At this point there are no plans to repocopy for a yet another version
of nvidia driver other than three legacy versions we already have.
Master port will be updated to the latest stable version once people who
had original problems with anything >195.22 (dougb@ et al) would test
any latest version nVidia has for us and confirm their stability issues
are indeed gone.
