So I started poking around with the current state of AIF and archiso, and it looks like the very first thing that needs to be done to AIF is to remove its dependency on grub legacy, and update it for grub2 and/or syslinux, which shouldn't be *too* hard...
I can't handle removing the dependency on the package itself, but you guys probably don't want me doing that anyhow at this point :P
actually aif supports syslinux. it's probably just a matter of removing grub support.
Well, I think I've successfully removed grub support and made it so that 'aif -p automatic -c /usr/share/examples/generic-install-sda' runs successfully on the archlinux-2012.07.15 image.
I've sent you a pull request on github, if you'd like me to send a patch to the list or the bugtracker or wherever, let me know. If you'd like me to stop pestering you, let me know, ha.
I'm currently running into https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/30525 when trying to run the interactive profile, fixing that and then adding support for grub-bios and grub-efi seems like a good next step.
