Hey Adrian, you are really helpful! :-)

So are all your tests. Your input is really appreciated, thank you!

I will check this out for the Power Macs and try to fix any issues on
the way by directly adapting `/usr/bin/grub-installer`.

Yep, that's the idea. I assume there are only minor changes necessary
to be made until everything works as intended.

I still haven't managed to fully fix GRUB on POWER-based systems though
as I cannot get partman to flag the boot partition as PREP. And without
that flag, grub-installer is unable to find the target partition for
installing GRUB.

I have to dig into the partman source code more to be able to find
the problem.

But could take until the weekend to find the time. :-/ I'll keep you informed.

No worries, take your time.
