Right. But to get to the 'source' files, you have to have a bootable
system ... which I didn't, and had to edit the Grub2 stanzas at boot,
on-the-fly, specifying the correct partition(s)...

Good point. In my case, the missing os-prober may have been the cause
of additional messiness in the final result. Must dig down into /etc/
grub.d and study its bits and pieces. Grub2 is a promising piece of
software, and seems more powerful and manageable than Grub legacy.
