Comment 4 for bug 792441

Shnatsel is correct in that I was the one who created the current GRUB patch. However, I realize that it is more of a hack than a legitimate fix. I'm admittedly not a GRUB expert -- the hack I implemented for Jupiter basically works by using the nickname of the OS from the `uname` command. I believe that if you change the nickname appropriately it should function normally in Luna. That said, I would definitely consider researching an alternative system to accomplish what were trying to do and have it work reliably in the long term and with future releases. I was pressed for time with Jupiter and did not have the time.
