I personally loves this new idea and agree with the approach however
GRUB 0.97 is at legacy mode (on upstream side) and it makes rather
difficult to us (Debian) to keep using it.

We're focusing our efforts in moving to GRUB2 and I'd like to ask if
you could work on a patch for GRUB2 too? It would allow it to get
accepted upstream and removing the maintainence work (in theory at
least) from you.

BTW, is the patch very intrusive?
