Nice, you did well!

I’ve already pushed “bdfresize” and “console-setup” partly based on your


The GRUB and Xorg parts look overall like the right thing to me—I’ll
take some time to review more closely soon.

Then we’ll also need to think about extending the bootloader API (not
GRUB-specific), and then providing a way to specify the layout globally
in a single place.

Anyway, thanks a lot for helping out!
