I think this is a critical problem. For example, if the user has a 
broken module which may crash GRUB, the user can easily break GRUB by 
trying a non-existent command.

Also, if my understanding is correct, the list of modules is stored in a 
binary form. This means that the user cannot (easily) modify the list 
after building GRUB.

The advantage of autocmd.lst is that it makes customization much easier. 
Suppose that the user wants to add a new command and build his own 
module. Then, how to autoload this command?
