Changing position of boot menu

I want to use a splash picture that has some content on the left side but a
quite spare right side. I looked through the grub code and found writing the
menu is done in stage2/stage2.c.

There are some functions (especially printEntries and printBorder) that take
x-values to locate the position they print on. Those are hard-coded. Would
it be enough to change those values or are they used in another context, e.g.
when determining the selected entry? Has nobody ever meddled with those

I want to do the following:
- put the entries more to the right (let them begin at half of the screen)
- do not write a border
- do not write those "hint messages" about what keys to press

- Perhaps: only display the current selected entry, hide the others and use
the existing scroll arrows to show the existance of other entries.

Anybody having good ideas and tips (I know enough C to do that but I do not
know the whole grub code and care about side effects)?

Thanks in advance
