Since most users don't need to know what kernel version is being used by default, I think we should simplify the title of the default menu entry (by removing the "with Linux ...") and have a submenu labeled "Advanced options for $OS". This submenu would include all kernel entries, including the first entry (which would also be booted if you just selected the main entry instead of going to the submenu). So the submenu would look exactly like the main menu currently does, except only listing kernel entries for one OS.

I've attached a proof of concept patch which does this.
