I spoke to Colin Watson on IRC recently and asked if the use of labels could be made an option in grub2 in the future.

He suggested I mention it on this list.

In the meantime I have made some patches to demonstrate this idea in grub 1.98 which I have attached.

They work fine for me, with GRUB_USE_LABEL="true" set in /etc/default/grub in my Mandriva-Linux systems.

A grub.cfg produced with a patched grub2 is attached also.

I am not a professional programmer, so I would appreciate any constructive criticism, and your comments in general on this idea.
