Hi grub maintainers,

grub-pc 1.98+20100527-1 and later conflict with grub-legacy.  grub
0.97-58 and later depend on grub-pc.  Therefore upgrades from lenny
with "grub" installed result in grub-legacy being removed, as planned.

Is this worth a mention in the "expected removals" section[1] or
"obsolete packages" section?  Advice (precautions) for users
upgrading?  Pitfalls?

[Thanks for keeping grub working well.  I'm a big fan.]

I think I'll deactivate it entirely for now, and remove it later.
