No, not only me had found workarounds for booting in urgent cases ...
That in Ubuntu it is still present has other roots...
Did anybody object to your tried and true development process?
You as a bright expert might deny like some of your very bright collegues

After all, I won't give any further comments on your attitude.

PS: And your explanation has shown that I was not too wrong when assuming
a few messages above that users will have to fiddle around with grub... :(

This was my very last comment on the subject. Byebye ...
