It should be noted that use of the generation scripts is optional and may not be used on some systems...

Could you help us with documenting grub better? Patches against texinfo
manual are welcome

I may be able to do that, however, I need to learn it myself.
I don't really mind reading code either, but a general idea about
where the drawing of the menu entries is located would be helpful.

I quick check shows that GRUB2 has 287 .c files, but I suspect that
most of the menu customization is handled in the term/ directory.

Actually most is in normal/ and gfxmenu/. Some stuff is in term/ gfxterm.c

And util/ (notably, util/grub.d) for the menu generation scripts.
