I didn't actually want to use a different (although enhanced) bootloader
 :-)   And I'd much rather use labels than sentinel files.

If your patches will end up in the main grub legacy code so that my
distro of choice (Gentoo) will end up picking them up then I'll gladly
do the research about how to find them.  I already did it this weekend
for swap partitions.

This is going to be a big deal for Linux real soon.  The pata drivers
are now all handled by the scsi subsystem which just numbers disks in
the order it finds them.  Actually trying to work out what a partition
will be named (sd?, hd?) in advance is a royal pain.
