Yes, Syslinux supports GPT as does the syslinux-install_update script 
that is included in the arch package.

With the issues stated in Pierre's mail about grub1 I think it makes 
sense to make Syslinux the "default". However, I want to know what the 
devs think as the "default" bootloader will likely have more new users 
using it.
