It's already possible to put arbitrary files in grub-mkrescue.  Is that
what you needed?

If you find that something is missing in grub-mkrescue, I think it's better
to get it integrated in the same script rather than providing a collection
of utilities.

grub-mkrescue is only aimed at creating floppies (or CD images, although
we don't support that too well yet).  For disks or disk-like media, grub-install
should work.  Did you find any drawback or limitation in that method?  It's
very useful for us that you tell us, since we can't think of every possible
use case.
