        Note that grub is not breaking, nor does grub transition break
 anything -- if users follow the advice in NEWS.Debian from grub, then
 they intriducean user error. So it is a documentation bug, which
 ought not to be grave, in my opinion.

        Because I already filed a bug on grub with what I considered
 appropriate severity -- normal. See

        Yeah, it does not help there was a bug in kernel-package that
 I just fixed that mean that any images built so far would result in a
 postrm that does not work well with non-absolute paths.  I think I
 have fixed it (finally) in 10.056, in incoming as I write this.
