That's right.  I would hope that any work I do now wouldn't become 
obsolete tomorrow.  Maybe the next day, but not tomorrow!

The Grub Legacy DOC patch did a couple things: first at adds some 
configuration options regarding DOC support, most importantly an 
option to bypass the DOC boot code and boot "normally" by holding 
down the ctrl key while booting.  Secondly it contains code to create 
a firmware image of grub that is loaded into the "boot sector" of the 
DOC device.
