I have now read over the old thread, I was just too lazy first and it
was half a year old anyway.
Okuji suggested grub-update-config too.

Personally as a user I would still prefer update-grub* and even
Because you are update'ing grub's config and installing grub
grub-mkdevicemap and grub-probe make sense that way
make device map for grub
probe for a grub device

Though yes for consistency everything grub-* would be better.
It's just like Robert already said on the old thread, Debian people know
it as update-grub from grub-legacy.

So there should be some update-grub wrapper/stub for a while, with a
hint that it's deprecated now.

For Debian it doestn't matter much how it gets changed, the problem is
more the change itself ;)
And I share Robert's opinion, that we (as in: the 2 active GRUB Debian
Maintainers) shouldn't diverge much from upstream (i.e. you ;) like it
was done on grub-legacy.
