So how does the ‘menu-entry’ example that Tomáš gave translate with this
new API?  (Apologies for asking, I admit I haven’t fully adjusted to the
new API mentally.  :-))

Well it's still moving :)

We can ask him but I guess something like that :

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
 (label "openSUSE")
 (root-device #f)
 (boot-name 'grub)
 (store-device #f)
 (store-mount-point "/")
 (kernel "(hd0,msdos1)/vmlinuz")
 (kernel-arguments (list  "root=/dev/penguin/opensuse"  
 (initrd "(hd0,msdos1)/initrd"))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Note that root-device, boot-name, store-device and store-mount-point are
useless here.

I came with something similar:

 (label "openSUSE")
 (root-device "/dev/penguin/opensuse")
 (boot-name 'grub)
 (store-device "(hd0,msdos1)")
 (store-mount-point "/")
 (kernel "(hd0,msdos1)/vmlinuz")
 (kernel-arguments '("root=/dev/penguin/opensuse"
 (initrd "(hd0,msdos1)/initrd"))))))

Unfortunately useless entries were still required (I didn't have that
idea with setting them to #f).

I couldn't verify the result configuration yet as I'm facing another,
unrelated problem.
