Why do they have to add it to the menu.lst?  You can add additional OF
devaliases using the OF command line interface.  But there is no
problem to make a temporary one either.

What Okuji described is exactly what I had in mind when I initially
started working on the PPC port.  You can use devaliases in any case,
although it would be nice if it is possible to use a full path, which
is what your patch made possible.  But if the full path conflicts with
the GRUB syntax, it just shouldn't be used...
