So,

You may remember that Robert and I have been trying to get Ubuntu to
work on an external HD, with Grub on the HD's MBR. We got it working.
:-D

In a nutshell, make Grub use volume IDs instead of /dev/sda1 style
paths, since device assignement can change on different computers.

Thanks for everyone's help and input on IRC and on the mailing list here,
