In the meantime, are you going to push a patch to the Debian repo, or do you
need any help?

Is a.out really required for the grub payload? I couldn't find anything in the
specification you linked that says it is, except for FCode executables (which
I assume grub-iee1275 isn't).
In any case, I understand that they want to avoid bit rot, but removing coff
and a.out is pushing it a bit. Any chance that it gets restored?

You should have told them that before they implemented it that way. ;)
