Nope. This is a different thing. This is a new feature which is not present in 
GRUB Legacy.

Although people often mistake this, booting a CD from GRUB is quite different 
from booting a GRUB installed into a CD. GRUB Legacy has the latter feature, 
but not the former one.

GRUB 2 needs to support both cases, but I prefer to see something not present 
in GRUB Legacy implemented in GRUB 2 first.
