I've been using it without problems, you can get it from github.
Thanks! Any sense of whether this needs to be run with or without nVidia drivers installed? e.g., If I already have them installed, will it be an issue to run this? The feature I'm most interested in experimenting with is "removes monitor preferences that can cause dark display issues". I'm guessing that might be the hitch for me.

If you run it with the -f option it will uninstall + re-install, with -r remove only. You can edit the script to have it remove the preferences, it won't by default
Code:
function uninstall_drivers {
silent rm -rf /Library/Extensions/GeForce*
...
# Un-comment the following lines to remove monitor preferences
# silent rm -f /Users/*/Library/Preferences/ByHost/com.apple.windowserver*
# silent rm -f ~/Library/Preferences/ByHost/com.apple.windowserver*
...
Or remove them yourself
Code:
sudo rm -f /Users/*/Library/Preferences/ByHost/com.apple.windowserver*
sudo rm -f ~/Library/Preferences/ByHost/com.apple.windowserver*
Depending on what is causing the dark display this might help.

Thanks for the terminal commands! With the last 2, is there any distinction between doing that via Terminal and deleting the same files manually in Finder?

No difference for files you own.
