[Bug 262309] Re: kgrubeditor MIR

I wonder a couple of things on this MIR:
- "process apt data": I grepped the source on apt and didn't find anything relevant; is this true?  Perhaps a leftover from copying a MIR of another package?
- I see the package handles the "DEBIAN AUTOMAGIC KERNELS LIST" block, but it doesn't call update-grub; I suspect it tries to update generated data itself; this doesn't sound right as its current behavior might not be aligned with update-grub's and it might derive even more if we change update-grub (e.g. "last good boot"); what do you think?
- Ubuntu uses the "uuid" command in menu.lst on new installs to select the root device; I don't think this command is handled, only "root" seems to be handled
- does the tool support GRUB2 in degradated mode, or not at all?  Will it support GRUB2?  We had discussions about supporting GRUB2 at UDS, and we'd like to offer it as an option during installation on jaunty -- NB: I think it would be good enough if kgrubeditor were to claim that it can't edit GRUB2's configuration when an user running GRUB2 tries to open the config
