It won't take much time to add grub2 support to AIF from Archboot, if
I can convert the DIALOG command to the corresponding lib-ui ones. But
right now grub2 is undergoing some changes (upstream) with the recent
release of 2.00~beta0 and I am hacking Archboot to make the
corresponding changes since the install process is also changing

I guess once grub2 is stabilized, gpt+grub2+uefi support can be added
to aif as a whole, or maybe with the larger process of actually
merging Archboot's setup script (which is far better than AIF in the
number of newer features/technologies it supports).

So whose with me on merging the setup script, instead of just
grub2/gpt inclusion?
