How long will the google-cache of this information be available?
Things in Debian don't move on google/internet time, IMHO. They are
generally much slower. Some people will still be struggling with
systems that use the older versions long after Google had given them
much lower status.

In order to help those who are stragglers in the rush to the future,
it would be nice if you could put a hotlink to the GRUB Legacy manual,
which is archived at gnu.org directly after its first mention (which
is in the History section of your document)
