I'm not attacking you, I'm stating a very plain fact. If RPMfusion says
"Sure, we'll help you move from Nouveau to NIVDIA" and, when people want to
come back to Nouveau, Nouveau developers answer "Ah, you fucked up your
system? Good luck!" the people who adopted the NVIDIA module will be stuck
with a one way ticket. And, whatever happens with Nouveau, some people will
always want to try the module provided by NVIDIA.

I don't know where RPMFsion stands on this issue, but they might not want to
make your life easier by providing instructions on how to remove their blob.
So, what I'm saying is that it's for you to decide if you want to make your
battle tougher with one way tickets to NVIDIA.
