I think I'll submit a patch that introduces the gap between the core

Ah, we had this before?  You mean before Hollis removed it, right?

Yes.  That's it:

-/* Where grub-mkimage places the core modules in memory.  */
-#define GRUB_IEEE1275_MODULE_BASE 0x00300000

It's not exactly a gap per se, but if the modules are placed at 3 Mb, there would be a gap.

What I mean is that we have things like --image-type=prep|whatever.  Although
maybe it is confusing..

I see. Considering that there is enough space on a CD, I'd go with universal images, if at all possible.
