Of course. One possible temporary solution would be to insert all
customization variables in 10_linux and other files in /etc/default/grub
with no value no and a simple comment over it (all the common used
variables). I can try to do it if you want, but I've just discovered
grub2 so it's quite risky.
Is it complicated to convert kopt= options in grub menu.lst to the
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX ? in postinst ?

Well, when I tried, I had a graphical menu with no entry. I had to type
'ESC' and try to find what was wrong (that's where I discover insert
lvm). If you wan't me to try again somes things, I can. I think it
disable font but try to load graphic mode without font. Is it possible ?

So I just need to wait until the next upload of debian-desktop that's it
no ? black color is better for text of course :-). But I'm not
debian-desktop developper. I'm not DD, so I can't upload it :-/
