Multislot is a downstream feature that renames parts of grub-2.x to
grub2-* instead of grub-* so that grub-0.x and grub-2.x can be on the
system at the same time. My understanding is that it is there to make
switching back and forth between grub-0 and grub-2 easier . In my
opinion, the better choice is to turn it off.
