Default link_in_boot (was: Bug#613200: linux-base: lilo.conf not updated to UUIDs for kernels not in /)

Not related to this bug, but I was wondering: Why deprecate this
feature?

I find it very useful for systems where I keep /boot in a separate
partition. Having the symlinks in the same partition allow you to
configure boot loaders like extlinux with the generic symlink names.

The links in / are generally not very useful IMHO if /boot and / are
different partitions.
