I agree with Thomas.
1.) There are better alternatives to installing grub on a partition (see
2.) Listing all the block devices and partitions becomes hard to read.
3.) Don't use grub-legacy (not supported upstream or maintained). Use
syslinux (installer) or grub2 (manually).
Installing grub to a partition is an uncommon setup and used by few
users, Those who really want to install grub to a partition can do so
