Same problem I had with the NV<>Nouveau switch. I run Debian Sid, they
dumped NV, but Nouveau is still "experimental" and doesn't support a lot
of older NVidia cards, so jumping through hoops to get video seems to be
the "standard" Xorg way now. (With or without an RT kernel.) Almost like
going back to the bad old Linux days when you had to know the real part
numbers for the actual video chips, so you could track down the
technical specs you needed to tell X to use. Sigh.
When I contacted one of the developers, I was basically told that I
could download the NV code, update it to work with Sid, and compile it
myself ... Oh, well!
So anyway it sounds to me like however you resolve it, it won't "work
all the times without much work."

Violating the GPL isn't an option, since for different reasons there's
no guarantee that this will work all the times without much work.
Nouveau is pestilence on my machine.
I'm not willing to use vesa, since it doesn't support the resolution I
wish to use.
Pfff! What graphics can be used that at least for non-rt-kernels could
be used with 3D acceleration and will provide without 3D acceleration
any screen resolution, without having a bad impact to audio and MIDI?
The integrated Radeon X1250 won't work with 3D acceleration, a GeForce
7200GS replace the ATI, it was ok with the proprietary driver for non-rt
kernels and using the nv driver it worked with rt kernels. Nouveau
doesn't work the way I expect a driver to work.
Now the nv driver doesn't work anymore.
