  If you are meaning that Mageia-3 will contain the capability of using
GRUB-Legacy but will install GRUB2, and a user may then choose to make a
post-install change to GRUB-Legacy, then I could live with that.

But I do feel that when a distro is making such a profound change (e.g. to
change to GRUB2) then at first it should offer that progression as an install
option, and install the 'Legacy' version as default.
