Does it really matter if a drivers is included in a kernel or not ?

When I installed Ubuntu 9.04, it automatically installed the 180.xx
nvidia drivers which supports VDPAU by default.

That it was integrated to the kernel, or installed by another package,
I couldn't care less really.

All it matters is that out of the box, vdpau and nvidia drivers were
installed and working properly
