It's a fair cop.  :-|

My complaint is neither grub-legacy nor grub2 ever pick up my OBSD
install, yet /etc/grub.d/40_custom is there and describes it, and
/boot/grub/menu.lst is there to upgrade from.

"aptitude reinstall $blah" never gets OBSD into the boot menu.
Never works (not complaining, just reporting; I'll check
bugs.debian.org for similar when I've time).

Debian's fdisk manages it (type a6 OpenBSD).  I'll keep banging my
head on it.

Any technology distinguishable from magic is insufficiently advanced.
