Given how long init-select has been RC buggy, I wonder if it wouldn't be
better to remove it from the archive completely. Selecting a fallback
init is something grub already provides today, so I don't see
init-select as something useful anymore nowadays.

Explicitly CCed Michael: what are your plans for init-select?
