ok, i see the point.

other question: pygrub::get_config(fn) tries to read
"/boot/grub/grub.conf". Normally this should be "/boot/grub/menu.lst".
I wonder which distro are you working on?

I expect this code will be in -unstable soon, so we can work on the
same code base. sending patch would be easier.
