It seems to work with pkgbase=grub, I didn't encounter any problems
pushing it to gerolde and into [testing].

>From my limited testing locally the package leaves grub alone when it
is installed, and replaces the grub2 packages like expected. So
everything seems to be working.

Please test and report any problems.

I'll move the old grub package as grub-legacy into AUR when this moves
to [core] and also remove the grub2* packages at that time. I'll make
a draft for a frontpage news in one of the next few days before I move
it to [core].
