Just did this:
grub> device (hd0) /dev/mapper/hpt37x_ehgjaggaf
grub> root (hd0,5)/boot
Filesystem type is reiserfs, partition type 0x83
grub> setup (hd0)

and it destroyed my RAID0.
GRUB is such a piece of crap :-).

It must be severely broken; since if it just sticked to writing to the
device I pointed it at (hpt37x_ehgjaggaf) which is a RAID0 "virtual
disk" / whatever, it should never be able to overwrite metadata out on
the physical disk.

Anyway, just wanted to tell you to beware.
Gerte has a GRUB example on his page where he does setup (hd0,5)
instead of setup (hd0), perhaps that's how it's meant to work.
