To be honest, I don't have a problem with that even though we use LILO as
default. I don't think this is a problem here because those that are tweeking
with their kernels like that here are usually the ones that don't use YUM to
update their kernel. I could be wrong, but if doing LILO is what's holding
you back for this, I say go for the 'grub-only' support. Especially for the
yum 2.0 stuff.
