And debian includes gnu software, it is not gnu itself. That means that
debian is free to chose the best tool for the job at the moment, and if
grub even existed at that point it wasn't it back when woody came out
(its installation still seems to be so badly documented that I still
don't know how to install grub if its not installed automatically at
sarge install, where lilo was a idiotic).
