That would be fantastic news if it's happened. Last I read the *nix driver build still lacked functionality present in the win driver build. What I got with the last update is very good but I've not seen another update since (I'm relying on the repository version though).
Personally, I'm fine with it being a closed binary blob provided nVidia can find bugs and deliver updates as fast as would be possible if opened to a community hoard. I just want functionally equality and well documented interfaces so third party devs can actually use the gpu functions to there fullest.
I still dream of the day when I don't have to kill all my running tasks just to reboot for a few hours of gaming in the evening.
