gentoo grub update

Sometimes Gentoo could do better in helping out with simple upgrades:

After upgrading to a new grub (linux hard drive bootloader) I saw this message:

* Messages for package sys-boot/grub-0.97-r5:

* *** IMPORTANT NOTE: you must run grub and install
* the new version's stage1 to your MBR. Until you do,
* stage1 and stage2 will still be the old version, but
* later stages will be the new version, which could
* cause problems such as an unbootable system.

I found this explanation:

http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-692724-highlight-grub+upgrade.html

to do this:

# grub-install hd0

I wish there was some way to get an Gentoo package upgrade automatically have a forum entry - with a helpful hint or two by the maintainer even better.
