I give a simple example of a possible menu interface here. This example is 
extremely simple among my ideas, but still requires a lot of new features (so 
the code as well). I name it "twm-like", because this resembles the twm 
window manager in good old days.

Although this looks complicated, the required features are not that many.

- GRUB needs to put a background image.

- GRUB needs to put text at arbitrary points.

- GRUB needs to manipulate image data (in order to draw a scroll bar and a 
timeout bar).

- GRUB needs to have timer events (in order to animate some pictures and text)

Note that the important thing here is that they must be entirely customizable.

As drawing this kind of picture takes a lot of time, I hesitate to make more 
pictures. But I have much more complicated examples in mind; but what's 
necessary is mostly some manipulation features of image data.
