The feature_* variables are great. Anyway I support Andreas suggestion
having a GRUB version variable (like many other interpreters/shells are
using it, e.g. BASH, Perl, TCL).
BASH is using 2 variables for it: BASH_VERSION and BASH_VERSINFO. The
second one provides an easy way to get the version, sub-version, etc.
(and eliminates the problems with parsing Andreas was mentioning
before). GRUB could provide something similar, but that's just a thought
which came up right now.
