There is no further upstream development of it. Debian will not maintain
it. It's dead. So GRUB2 became a release goal for Squeeze.

Upgrading from Lenny to Squeeze gives the choice of keeping an existing
GRUB or converting to GRUB2. With a new install it's GRUB2 only. But the
choice to go for GRUB legacy exists afterwards, which seems reasonable
to me.
