I give this "integrate work" a try and so far so good. Had found nothing
that would have been *mandatory* to change in grub 2's kernel. If I find
on the way some good ideas to share I'll express them on this
mailing-list for comments.

That's what roboot aim to be, an add-in module.
I understand we will have to face some interface changes from time to
time but I am ready for that too ... and that will make things even

Well, we are all working on that part too ! and I am full of hope we are
going to make it.
I am quite confused with drivers dealing with BIOS, but I don't want to
feel helpless, so I'll try to do something useful with grub-emu and let
you know if I can work on grub's kernel (is there anything missing you'd
like to add ?). 
By the way, is there anybody working on having the vbe interface working
on grub-emu ? Any hint to help me start work on it ?
