Whoa, hold on.  I was just mentioning the things for which *I*
personally find GRUB useful.  (This is what I thought you were
soliciting.)  There is still a lot of value in an actively-maintained
SYSLINUX, and lots of things for which SYSLINUX is the superior tool.
(I mentioned some of those, too.)

I am not sure what kind of response you were expecting.  But if mine
is really making you consider "shutting the project down", then please
forget I said anything at all...
