Subject: grub:2 keywords

An official release of grub-2.00 should be coming pretty soon. I would
like to keyword this for ~amd64 and ~x86 shortly after it hits the tree.
I don't do much work on base system packages, so I would like some
advice on how to make this as smooth as possible.

My main concern is that many people probably have sys-boot/grub in
@world. If grub:2 is made visible, portage will install it, and will
remove grub-0.97 on the next depclean. This could be a little confusing,
but should not cause any immediate damage since the copy of grub-0.97
installed in the MBR and /boot would remain intact.

Is this worthy of a news item? Or I just blog about it?

Anything else I need to think about here?

Note: The Gentoo Documentation Project has indicated that they do not
want to add anything to the handbook until we are somewhat close to
stabilizing grub:2. That's at least a couple months away.
