Oh, I'm sorry.  I missed the part of your mail that mentions GRUB Legacy
cannot easily migrate to GPLv3 because it uses GPLv2-only code.

In that case, I suggest we keep GRUB Legacy under GPLv2, but also make the
promise that GPLv3 code from GRUB 2 won't be relicensed to GPLv2 for use in
GRUB Legacy, because that makes GPLv3 useless.
