Is there any possibility that it can become mixed up as to which the 
original driver is? Or can it be trusted to always put the sourceforge 
driver back if user selects original driver and the special driver if that 
is selected?

I had a strange situation where I thought that might have happened when I 
tried to use kismac after installing it and I used the driver tool 
unnecessarily by mistake, and I got in a situation where I could not use my 
card normally and I reinstalled both the Source Forge driver and kismac to 
fix it.
