The chainloading grub to grub sounds like a decent workaround. I had
wondered if this is possible. If I were to make a separate /boot
partition, then could _both_ the systems update their own grub

Actually, it's more complicated than that but for purposes of
discussion I wanted to use names that are easy to called each install.
If I were to call them "Ubuntu for purpose X" and "Ubuntu for purpose
Z" the conversation would get confusing!
