Not yet , you can though rename the other one and digest it, but i think the patches would get damaged and wouldnt work.
But if you find an ebuild please tel me :D

Not that I'm disagreeing with your conclusion I haven't tested the drivers yet, but glxgears is an absolutely atrocious benchmark for anything practical.

It might be atrocious to find out what your card if fully capable of BUT relatively speaking between different nvidiak-kernel relases any changes are most probably due to the new drivers, thus as a quick indication yes it is good
