But you get a vastly larger set of bugs with it. It's a mini operating

No small problem with Grub2 is that few but Grub devs know how to configure 
it. Grub2 documentation is among the worst of the bad, virtually 
non-existent, particularly in a form those who need it most can comprehend, 
e.g. multibooters, RAID users & GPT users who are not Grub devs.
