If you're talking about the nvidia driver (not the xfree86) then this isn't 
true in general. It's been working here without any tweaks fine since 
-current short after 5.1-release, also OpenUniverse is running without 
problems here.
But the nvidia driver is still the same, you have to talk to nvidia to release 
a new one.
