Grub installation. First potential Fedora killer

Installer sees the partitions of other Linuxes.  But when rebooting after installation Fedora was the only choice.

Running grub2-mkconfig fixed it, ie other distribution became available.  Sort of.  Problems:
1)  Fedora was the default and there is no easy way (that is without reading the 150+ pages of Grub documentation to change that)
2)  If user does not know about grub2-mkconfig he will believe he is "trapped" in Fedora and will be very, very angry
3)  Every time he runs the other distribution and updates it he needs to rebooot into Fedora and run grub2-mkconfig
