Too bad.  If I just ask enough people, someone will eventually work on
this ;-)

Robert, do you know if Guillem is still willing to work on this?  I
thought you know him quite well, so I start asking you here.  He had
some code two years ago when I met him at FOSDEM.  IIRC the problem
was that we didn't have an elf.mod.  We do have this now.

How about writing a manual just like GRUB Legacy has?  It would be
nice to have a good info manual that covers GRUB 2.  It's one of the
most important things that is missing.  And you do not need to know C
to write one :-)
