anyway if a hash is used that takes (by design) around one second on the machine (e.g. sha256 repeated thousands? millions? of times), then I suppose the time taken to erase the memory used by GRUB would be trivial in comparison, assuming(rightly or wrongly) a good implementation...

The problem is not time, it's just to find the right way to do it.

yeah. probably involves thinking about GRUB's allocation and deallocation mechanisms, which I don't know anything about and don't have time to investigate :-/
