Btw, the old update-grub that Debian put in GRUB Legacy package has code to do
this in shell (without bashisms I think).  It's a 61-line function.

Getting the paperwork for this is out of the question, but I could describe in
plain English what are the heuristics that it applies if someone else is willing
to implement them.

Note that the heuristics in that script are highly valuable, since they're known
to produce good results over a very long period of time.
