Why is this a grub development concern? It might be work for Debian, but
other distros might not have nearly as many patches...

If these patches are so important, *and* they are backported from
official grub commits, then they could be nominated for inclusion into
some prospective 2.04.1 maintenance release too.

Either way, having fewer patches to track on top of more up to date
official sources should always be considered a good thing. Having a
delta between upstream sources and built sources is never *good*, even
if it is often a *necessary evil*.
