In what way is it a vast improvement over LILO?  I've never had a problem with
LILO.  It's always "just worked", which is what a bootloader should do.  So
how exactly would grub be a better choice for me?

What choice?  Apparently the Debian team have decided there will be no
bootloader choice when Squeeze becomes Stable.  Supposedly at that point it's
Grub2 or your system no longer boots.  That's not much of a choice is it?
