Thanks.  Yes, the devel list would be good, I think.

As Andrey pointed out, it is the standard way in Unix manuals,
the dots meaning: "as many more of the preceding as you want".

And the dots are used that way in many other places in grub, and
therefore seeing "[TERMINAL1] [TERMINAL2] ..." confuses me
-- do I have to provdide two terminals? no, the first is optional,
ehm, and the second too, ehm, so why are two mentioned?
