Re-implement the Section Management tab in YAST - Boot Loader for grub2

Feature state

openSUSE Distribution
Rejected Information

Description

Since grub2 became default for openSUSE, I upgraded to it from grub. Everything works well, but there's one inconvenience: The fields to modify and sort entries are gone from Yast -> System -> Boot Loader. It would be nice if this section could implement the same menu for grub2, so users with less experience don't need to hack configuration files to modify entries.

For grub, there was a "Section Management" tab and a "Boot Loader Installation" tab in the Boot Loader window. When grub2 is installed, the first tab is gone, and only the second one exists. Here is a screenshot (not mine) showing the tab that existed for grub and is gone in grub2: http://i45.tinypic.com/lfpyq.png

User benefit:

It's actually there, you just need to look in a different place. It's under "Bootloader options" in the Boot Loader Installation tab.
But it's true that it does not have all the functionality of the old Section Management tab, you can only modify the options for the openSUSE section.

I only noticed you can specify the default entry, and IIRC a few parameters. But yeah, I am talking about re-implementing the customization that existed for grub1.

There is also no ability to rename grub entries and adding some custom entries. This is a serious regression to many users...
