Well, it has proven to be a give and take at the moment. grub2 can boot
a kernel on a filesystem that is on a lvm. grub cannot. However, grub
supports pxe whereas grub2 does not yet. grub2 also has a whole lot more
but I have not had time to check them out yet besides its design change
to a modular program instead of compile time only grub.
