Stop dreaming, this will never happen, NVIDIA has long history of not 
disclosing details of their chips internals, and no sane programmer will 
waste time on the stuff from company that has longstanding attitude line 
NVIDIA's one.

If you program that, I will say hooray, and simultaneously will tell you 
my condolences in advance as quite soon your driver will die because of 
lack on information from NVIDIA. Which I predict will happen even if you 
once get all information you need. This is my (and not only my) loooong 
observation.
