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[1], 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.
