The current wiki page buries all information about the ability to manually create a grub.cfg, in the "Tips and tricks" sub-page as a tiny blurb.
Last time I read the wiki page I remember it explicitly stating not to write grub.cfg manually and it cab break your system/boot. Given that warning and the complex looking default configuration many people are turned away from grub2. I too went to syslinux and it has been way easier. Having an entry in the wiki for simpler grub.cfg would make a good case for grub2 :)
