I've thought about why it's not that easy to separate each GRUB-entry to 
each version of Mageia or any OS for that matter.

Let's say you would like to click on something to only show boot-kernel 
for a certain OS & you have installed 3 distros side by side.

How to make it more easier to know which kernel belongs to which distro 
& version if you don't focus on the mga1 or mga2-part in the kernel-name?

My idea would be to enhance GRUB to be like a login-window, but you have 
theese options to click to show what kernels you boot:

MICROSOFT-logotype                                      LINUX-logotype
                                                                           |                                                                   |
                                                                           |                                                                   |
                                              Sub-category Windows 
7                             Sub-category  Mageia 1
                                                                                                                   Sub-category Cauldron (development-version)

This is just an example so your way may be different.
