I run grub on all of my RAID systems, software or otherwise. There is no problem with grub on software RAID1 or RAID0. Software root RAID5 does not work, but that is not the bootloaders fault.
Not sure why you claim otherwise but I know grub works fine.
In addition grub offers a better approach IMO for ensuring that the boot loader is installed on both of the disks in a RAID1 mirror to ensure failure of the boot sector device does not create an unbootable system. This is despite claims that it cannot be done by some adherents to Lilo on the mailing lists.
grub works just fine in all of the situations and odd disk tricks I have tried.
