What if maintaining grub2 starts to get boring for the developers, and
the code rots (or there's never a stable release?)
LILO could be maintained pretty much forever by anyone good (enough)
with C, since the main issues would be compiler-upgrades requiring code
changes to compile. Moving target filesystems would not figure into the
picture like they do with GRUB.
