Dual head doesn't mean dual card but single card with two heads... nv
only supports dual head on g80 (that's 8xxx and 9xxx). If you want
dual head on older stuff, you need nouveau.

As for inclusion in "mainstream releases" it really depends what you
mean... In short, I'd say we're not ready to work on stable
interfaces, but people are welcome to get current git/use prebuilt
