Oh, Pavel said in that
we should use text rather than numbers. I assume that he meant that the
saved entry should actually be the menu item name? If so I tend to
agree; I'm pretty sure that we have a long-standing bug somewhere to the
effect that if you have a bunch of distribution kernels at the top of
the menu and another operating system at the bottom, then it's a pain to
declare the other OS as the default because every time new distribution
kernels are installed the menu indices change.
