Personally I do not care about if GRUB is confusing for linux users.
As I see it, GRUB is not only a linux loader.

I thought I have changed the command to the variable.  But perhaps
this was only done for prefix (although that would be weird...).  In
that case we need a `root' variable.  It is high on my todo list now,
but don't rely too much on me and my todo list and please write it if
you need it.  It is the right thing to do it this way.
