Bug#545154: grub-pc: on upgrade other OS are not carried over, and os-prober does not work

reassign 545154 grub-pc
retitle 545154 grub-pc should depend or at least recommend os-prober

And via that remark I only learned of the existence of os-prober.
That is a bug in grub-pc, not in os-prober, I did not have it installed.
Installing it renders the generated grub.cfg more reasonable.

The problem is that upgrading grub-legacy to grub-pc breaks
existing configuration as long as you not at least recommend os-prober.
