No, there was not much discussion about this.

IMHO something bash-like would be the best.  Everyone knows these kind
of languages.  And the config file will look a lot like the one of
GRUB Legacy.

That is the problem of scheme, most people don't know it.  For me it
is important that someone who wants a simple scripting feature don't
have to learn a completely new language.  I assume most uses of GRUB
are not programmers.
