If you have helped to increase the stability of the Composite extension 
in nvidia's proprietary drivers, I salute you, sir!  Random crashes (a 
MTBF of 2-3 days) have led me to abandon its use, but if you've finally 
found the bugs and they get fixed in the next version, I'll be eternally 
grateful. :)
