woha, you just took an item of my todo list for this week.

+1 for adding it to testing.

Although grub2 should support ext4 (I did not test it) I think choice
is always a good thing. Between now and a stable release of grub2
there will probably be a great lot of people switching to ext4, so
adding support for ext4 to grub should be the right thing to do imo.
