There's an Nvidia response to this which goes along the lines of "This
is not what you think it is, and could break stuff. Stop fucking with a
binary when you don't know what you're doing, please. And if you do,
don't say we didn't tell you so when things die horribly."
This is, of course, a paraphrasal. The response is available at
linuxgames.com (http://www.linuxgames.com/news/index.php3/5018 about 1/3
of the way down the page).
