Odd message with latest updates.

Ran the latest updates just now. Just after the instal and setup of the
latest kernel, 2.6.27-10-generic, The following message was displayed:

"Running postinst hook script /sbin/update-grub.
Your /etc/kernel-img.conf needs to be updated. Read grub's NEWS.Debian[1]
file and follow its instructions.

 1. /usr/share/doc/grub/NEWS.Debian.gz

Searching for GRUB installation directory ... found: /boot/grub
Searching for default file ... found: /boot/grub/default"

It looks like they are asking users to mess with files which if done
wrong, could hose the system really well. Shouldn't this be done
automatically with updates? Wouldn't that be closer to the "Ubuntu Way?"
